Well, today will be paint day, if my luck holds we should be in the mid 50's this afternoon - it really needs to be at least 50 to paint according to the side of the can.
I got some primer on most of the small bits yesterday, today I'll do the block and head and get color on everything. I'm hopeful that I can get all the color on before about 3 pm, so it can sit outside and vent the fumes; when I bring freshly painted stuff into the shop it tends to stink up the place, and makes the bride wrinkle her nose in a cute but pointed way.

Thank you everyone so much for taking the time to respond and providing further insight. I do realize they're a bit on the expensive side but if I'm spending $'s on Smith gauges, the upgrade tech/lighting of these aftermarket gauges make it worth it. Then again, this may be first mini but they're hard to not spoil/fall in love with, aka...stretch the wallet more than necessary.
