Tried a few other things, like rotating the HAVOC_TRQ_GAUGE object in the cockpit, which worked after I added it to the SUB-OBJECT listing. I know I've got the correct object.

Until we can get the object to render in the cockpit with a texture, there just isn't anything I can do to get it to work.
All I can think of is delete the current Object, then copy a working Object with a texture (please bigger than two dots) to it's location, name it HAVOC_TRQ_GAUGE and we can try it again.
