Ok, so after some tedious repainting job (or is there some more or less hidden way or recoloring all the polys with one color?)

Right-click on the materials list; there are "Replace all" and (in the latest release) "Move first/up/down/last" commands which make repainting a lot less painful.

I will got for more traditional gauge layout, as the retro-styled original layout would be:
1. Impossible to recreate with fixed center point in Stunts.
2. Pretty illegible in low resolution.

By original layout you mean this? If so, while showing only the needle tip is impossible having needles with the same centre and different radii should work.

So there's no way to use a mask there... Too bad!

OK, I'm done with the gauges, I think. Tell me, are the digits legible enough?

Maybe there is room for making a few of the numbers, such as the "40" in the speedometer or the "8" in the rev meter, one pixel larger or a bit crispier - as long as it can be done without compromising the nested gauge layout, which looks awesome  :)

Well, I've made 8s one pixel taller, but 40 is kind of beyond my pixelart skills to make more legible in given space.

However, there is some progress...

OK, so the rest of the dash is done. Now, I'll start making the rotated versions of the steering wheel. Thanks to having a separate file with steering wheel in separate layer, it shouldn't be that difficult.

EDIT: Forgot about the attaching the progress...
