Did you sand the square edges off the Madman?
Yes unfortunately I had to round the Madman gauge as it did not look of fit very well with the pillar pod. I am planning to finish the Madman gauge off a bit better where I did the sanding

looks great!

What is your Patrol's interior paint code (W/K/G)? How did you match the colour?

I actually dont know what the interior paint code is. I was a bit in a hurry so I just went to builders with a sample of the color I needed and took the can of paint that was the closest.
And the color is actually pretty close

Slim plan - ek moet dalk dieselfe vir Chuck doen!

Ek kort 'n single vir 'n boost gauge, maar oral op die Internet sien ek net double/triple gauge pods. Boonop is hulle meestal ook net vir LH drive Patrols :think:
