Wish your gauge faces could have the detail that would make you go blind trying to paint? I have the solution. It's quite simple. If you have the decals for them, already it's even easier. If not, use your art program(I wouldn't recomend "paint" because it is too pixelated) and creat some dials to the scale of the bezels. Drill out the holes and sandwich the printed dials between the gauge cluster and another piece of plastic, so that the dials line up with the bezels. Glue back piece to gauge cluster. Presto, perfect dials.
