Painted a few things.

Well Ive been wanting to paint the trim rings around the gauges for a while now so after seeing Ty do it well I gave it a shot finally.

Prep!


I wanted to do the bases off the needles to but i couldnt get the damn things off I tried a fork and a golf divot fixer and they wouldnt move.

Finished Product, kinda crappy picture but the best I could get with only a cell.


Also painted the Center Bezel and the OHC the same color.
Center Bezel


Forgot to get a pic of the OHC.

All in all im pretty happy with it.
