·        S2 Instrument panel, a 3D model that I commissioned, download here. One person printed it out in Jan 2024 and reported the hole diameter for the main gauges was approx. 1 mm too small. Recommend caution when inserting your gauges, and/or possibly lightly sanding. I hate to change the pattern for fear it might make the holes to big, and your gauges would move around.
