I'm not finding the repop glove box bezel in plastic but I have found it made from aluminium for like $175 bucks... ouch. I've talked to Bob Meals but he has lost his plater and cant do the vacuum plating at this time. Hopefully Bob finds anothe plater.

I'm keeping the factoy radio... the issue now is with the glove box door bezel.
I'd like to keep the plastic setup but nobody seems to make it in plastic. Hoping to find a plater to restore mine.

This is Bob Meals...he is very good at redoing plastic parts. Send him a question on the glove box door and see if he does them.

I have talked to Bob on several accasions, he lost his plater that does the vacuum plating. He cant do any plastic plating until he finds a new plater.
