The red is "rouge pounzeau" (a color from Renault palette of the 80´s) and the gray, was custom mixed using my HP laptop color as a guide, and coated in satin clear , all in Dupont brand.

thanks for the comments!

I really like the way the dash came out, what size gauges did you use? Also any underhood pics? Im interested to see how you laid out the turbo kit, as Im planning on starting building mine later this year

Cool looking gauges and a nice setup. I wanted to do something similar but with rectangle gauges but I couldn't find any small rectangle gauges for fuel, volt, oil and temp.
