HOT TIP!  Attach a strip of  painter's tape (sticky-side-up) to a flat piece of wood (think a paint stir stick)

Attach the gauge faces to the tape, then hold the stick upright while  spray painting.  Works great!

Spray with a quality satin enamel.  Krylon actually makes great paint that sprays smoothly, and has very good UV resistance.

Inner speedometer markings will align at the screw holes. Rub over the markings from the center outward. The numbers and lettering need to attach first, and then the hash marks to the inner ledge.
