More Vintage-y.

The dash in the 901 Spitfire looked more circle track than road course. 

It was simply fashioned in aluminum. 

So, I thought a cheap fix would be to spray it with some textured black like many 60s sports cars.

The decision was easy. But removing the dash on any car is not. With mechanical gauges I had to drain the water. And the oil to remove the sensors and pull them out.

But, for a few hours(7) and fewer bucks(6), the dash now just fades back. Yes, to black. 

The modern gauges will have to wait a while. They are accurate and work and I can't justify spending money to go to Smiths or something.

Sorry for the horrible pics.
