Wow, definately impressed with the way it came out. Looks great. How did you keep the numbers/etc from being painted over? Taping them up would be quite the chore.

That looks really red! And it looks great as well. Good job. I gather you sprayed it from the back.

I've been looking for this link ever since I saw this thread on Saturday. This guy made his own white faces for his gauges, and he now sells them. I imagine the same could be done in any color you can find paper in. I've also heard of people having the numbers, lines, etc. printed on clear acetate (the material transparencies for overhead projectors are made of) and putting that over a background color of their choice.

Anyway, here's the link:
