When any part of the system is using power, the pointer should point to the left (D).
You've got the wires connected the wrong way around.
C = Charge (charging)
D = Discharge (using)

James, I'm curious as to what you used to restore the rolled edge back around the bezels, how smooth it turned out & how tight you were able to get it. Gary.

Correct James. The Battery terminal on the back of the instrument is closest to the drivers door. The rear of the instrument casing is also stamped B and GEN to identify the terminals.
Gary is referring to the bezel, the parts you repainted satin black. To remove the bezel from the instrument case a small flat blade screwdriver is usually required to pry up the rolled over lip for at least half way around the perimeter.
Did you have a tool that could roll the lip back over or just used a bigger flat blade driver or similar tool to slowly work the lip back over to lock the bezel onto the case?.

There's a specific gauge bezel roller for this purpose.
But then, I'm doing this every other day.
There's also a tool for lifting/removing the bezel off the gauge.
These make it a lot easier, and neater too.
However if you're pressing the bezel over manually, you won't see the back of it once fitted, so it'll look fine.
Bezel roller looks like this:
