    My Series V guage needles have faded. What is the correct color orange paint to repaint them?

    If using thr paint don't apply it thickly... The weight of it can actually change the calibration of the gauges

    Good point. On the small gauges it will not have much impact. BUT on the tachometer it WILL have a significant impact if at all too thick.
