Hi Steve, that's why I sold my DNA dial back, I changed my mr2 instrument cluster to mimic the f430 instrument cluster around 5 years ago, the reworked circuit board now has the gauges, mil lights, and speedo closer to the f430 positions.
I've still got to do the fascia cover like yours, but that's some time off yet.

Time for another update, I've been working on the Mr2/Ferrari dial backs for the mr2 modified instrument cluster. I've used INKSCAPE to produce version 1.0
Because I've drawn the dial backs, every component of the drawing is configurable for a correct fit and alignment against the mr2 circuit board.
The lay method has been tried and tested by a youtuber called 'more molecules' I'll make a couple of changes to free up more colours, but it'll be basically the same.
very pleased with the result so far

Dave Jones kits (mr2kits)are good quality, and built on the mr2 mk2, some on the twin entry turbo models, Dave Jones had a demo car (customers) at Stoneleigh with a 3ltr v6 in it.
The problem with the cars is that they look too short. When Roland designed the DNA 360, he stretched the ends of the kit panels, this enabled him to disguise the mr2 mk3's shorter wheelbase when compared to the Ferrari, Enzo design also had the proportion problem, they tried to deal with it by making all the kit dimensions smaller, this then lead to a car that looked and felt too small.
 The DNA kit makes the best of what's available for a relatively easy build.

Even a real Ferrari has trouble sounding like a Ferrari!
This may give you an insite how to get a better exhaust note

Might be an idea to drop Roland a line, he'll tell you straight away.

If you are truly looking for that extra bit of bling, 3M 3d carbon fibre wrap would be the best way, once professionally wrapped get it clear coated with several layers of laquer. I may get mine done once it's painted.

no holes, they're usually glued on or double sided foam tape. the badge pins are cut off
