Very interesting John, when you say turbo, oil & volt dials, do you mean paint them, what colour you like ?

Is there any more news on these spray paints. I have resprayed the interior center column (it was very in poor condition) but it does not fully match the rest of the interior and i would like a perfect match!

I have managed to source some spray paint which will hopefully match the interioir grey ver well. I will be receiving through the post shortly and let you know results once I've refurbed the center console. Could be a useful can of paint for bringing those parts of your interior back to a richer colour (especially the door sills!)
