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.

Different process according to Bob. The instrument panel and heater control panel chrome is Chrome Hot Stamped, the rest is vacuum metalized.

Heres the email he sent me...

Dave, Thanks for the e-mail. As of today, we are crippled in our ability to restore parts. We can do the heater bezel, slide guide and the instrument bezel. We cannot do the radio face plate, arm rest bases or glove box cover. Our vacuum metalizer quit on us and has really cut down on our operations. I hope to resume the rest of the parts in the near future. Thanks, Bob Meals

Chrome isnt to bad on glove box door, I think I can get by with repainting insert. Radio bezel is a little shabby.
