    Gauge faces for our cars

    OK;
    As I get closer to making the gauge face plate for the interior I am building, I am faced with a decision I never thought would cause me this much waffling on. :-\

    VDO gauges are not as plentiful up here in Canada as they are in the US so I have obtained a couple gauges for fitment purposes from Autometer.

    The gauges I got, however, are black face with silver bezels. (I am going to paint the silver bezels black). I can't get the electronic speedo in black bezel from Autometer. Always something......

    Seeing the interiors with the white face gauges, I am at a cross roads as to what I want to put in the car. I really like the white faces with black bezels. I like them both and don't have a preference either way as they both look great.

    What are people's thoughts about black face versus white face? More modern look with white faces or more authentic look with black faces for the interior?

    Thanks
    Don

    Don:

    I like the white as well. I did use the black face and always wish I had the stones to step out of the box and go with a different color on them. After all, it is our rendition of a 355 anyway. I say go for the white.

    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.
