Default Color Coding Numbers

I am trying to set up the color coding on my gauges and wonder if anyone has some starting points. Most of these numbers should be close to the same for an IO-390, I'm guessing. Having never set this up before, I'm not sure where the green stops, yellow starts and ends, then red for the following instruments:
Oil Pressure
Oil Temp
CHT Temps
EGT Temps
Fuel Pressure
... am I forgetting anything? Not sure how crazy I should get, there is also white, yellow with alert, etc. Any help would be appreciated.

I would go look at the Type Certificate Data Sheet for the 390.

It may or may not cover all the dash number versions of the 390 but it is a starting point.

I am attaching the PDF TCDS E00006NY Rev9 that the FAA has published as of this post.
