my Dash bezel is rubbed back to the plastic in 90% of the chromed areas, and will need either replacement or some type of refurb to get it looking good again.

i know that you can get plastics chromed properly these days. which i am sure is not how they did them originally.

has anybody got their dash facias done through one of these shops?

Do any of the guru's have any tips on getting these fixed up?

are the repop ones ford tooling/any good? i have seen some nice shiny pics of impressed owners of new bexels, but haven't heard how they fit, etc.

i am after the original LHD ones, not the RHD repops that require the manufacturers dash sheet metal to fit.

Cheers

Come check mine out Tim... (before I cut it up)
Fitted no dramas, took about an hour to swap them over...
Scott has my old one.

That reminds me.. I need to tighten one of the retaining nuts.

Getting plastic chromed here is quite expensive Tim, I had one done for my XM and it was about $450 9 years ago.
Repo's are good and comparativly inexpensive.
cheers

Havn't found any repo's for my 69. I have some model car chrome paint that we are going to air brush on mine. Yes it looks like chrome!! has a semi gloss black base. To mask it out you use a silocon based rubber you paint on and cut around. Will post up some pics when its done to see how it turns out. Next month or so will see it done

Love to get hold of some of this gear!!! Could be a nice little market

Look forward to the results, generally silicon and paint are not to be used together especially in the same sentence. Very Happy

I was going to comment on that but you beat me to it. You can get the standard 69 dash in repo, but not the one that accepts the woodgrain. I have Q's away being re-done & yes it is spendy.
