Take a finished gauge to someplace that has a good selection of spray paint colors (like Home Depot) and find a cream or tan that matches (like the Krylon Gloss "Almond" Harley mentioned). If you want it perfect, go to an auto body paint store and have them laser match it. Here's a pic of the gauge faces from C&G Ford Parts:

Great tip! That helps me a lot. Thanks!
