Curretnly working on this kit and is it just me, or were the dash gauges printed upside down?

The gauges usually are done with the vehicle at "rest" or at 0 and these would be at "full throttle" so to say

 I'm used to gauges that sweep in a clockwise fashion, meaning the decals are set to zero. At least going by the tachometer on the left.

So that was what I'm seeing, yes on the decal sheet the gauges are correct. However when applied to the dash they will be upside down. (you flip them to fit into the dash area)
