I'm am investing in some gauges this week and i am gonna go with the defi's and the defi gauge pod, now... it says that the pod does not come painted. I want to paint it the exact color as our dash iv'e seen pics of people doin it to the identical color, so has anyone done this? and if so what color is it?

Thanx guys

i'm actually going to repaint my dash with this paint.

i was going to post one up of what i did but my digital camera didnt want to auto focus. but the pics i have will give you an idea of the matching color. used too used this stuff back in the days building model cars. anyways, spray pod with primer black prior to painting with DUPLI-COLOR(charcoal). it makes the charcoal paint darker. enjoy

either or will suit your needs. well in my case, it helped me notice something when i installed my aps headers. i was 2 or so psi low during idle. i just got my headers jet hot coated and didnt wrapped the uppipe with the wrap it came with.(i should of) uppipe was still very hot and melted the sealant on my rocker panel. got it fix though and wrapped the header and uppipe with thermo tec wrapped.
