some shiny new "go slow" parts

Like the modified gauges. Seen the 3-gauge style before on the left. Never seen a Tach with the oil pressure gauge within. Looks sharp.

And yes, still like the color! so clean!

Thanks guys. I love the color too. I always wanted to do an oil pressure gauge in the tachometer after seeing a boost gauge in the turbos. I could have made the combo a quad gauge, but I thought that looked crowded. Also, I like seeing the oil pressure right in front of my face. I never imagined it would look that clean. Hartmut at Palo Alto Speedo (Palo Alto, CA) did a terrific job and was great to work with.

Love the progress. I've thought about doing the "gauge in the tack" mod with oil temp instead of oil pressure for track use. Although my car's not really a track car anymore so not sure it makes sense now.
