There are a couple. One of them is Mr. G's. Have heard a mixed bag of stories-many of them not good. There's another in Ca-never heard anything about them. 65-8 guys are lucky because we can buy new repro but some models of GM and Mopar not so fortunate.

I would be interested in this too...as my dash needs to be rechromed on the plastic...I am thinking it is just gonna be easier to save up for the Aluminum dash bezel!!!!

I bought my instrument panel bezel from a guy that rechromes them and takes your old one in exchange.Looks just like brand new.I also got all the little dials in the pad in the center of my steering wheel(68)Paid about half the price of a repro.

I will have to take a look in the basement to find the guys address,I have one of his catalogues down there somewhere.Stay tuned I should have it tommorow.This much I know its here in Ontario, Canada but if you can't get a repro I guess the shipping would be worth it.

Had my '69 dash done about a year ago. It came out better than it was, but not quite like new. However, to the unknowing, it is as good as new. Unfortunately, I can't remember who did it.

I have three contacts from Hemmings:

American Plastic Chrome - (734) 721-1967 Chuck( 734) 261-4454 Rod 8812 Hannan Road, Romulus, Michigan 48174

D&D Plastic Chrome - (419) 260-2723 PO Box 364, Temperance, Michigan 48182-0364

Mr. G's Enterprises - (817) 831-3501 mrgsusa.com 5613 Elliot Reader Road, Fort Worth, Texas 76117


Hope this helps...

Scott

I had Mr. G's rechrome my interior plastic. I'm real happy with the work they did, but everyone I've ever dealt with there seemed to be really PO'ed at everything. Sorta unpleasant.
