I painted it. First I painted orange, looked OK. Then I over sprayed with a little yellow, then some black flecking. Finally `I sprayed satin polly on it.

I might change, it's growing on me. It helps with glare.

Thanks Nigel, in retrospect, I might have used black first then mottled it with orange. I used what I had, didn't have any black. I took the lazy way out. I'm up for a beer, you buying?

Always good to have orange paint on hand
Looks neat! Looks like it should fix the glare issue Well except for the gauge and switch reflections, you might have to just live with them

I've used wrinkle paint because of desert sunshine. It works ok.

I never thought of wrinkle paint, might be in the future. As I said, I used what I had laying around.

I think you need to cover it with some deer skin. You know from a dead road kill. It would be away to get your own back.
