Working on the ole 66 and redoing the cluster. Over the years part of the plastic bezel has got a little wavy. Seems like I saw where someone put some kind of backing on it to hold it straighter. Any ideas on what will work.
Thanks JR:)

Yes, they all seem to be wavy after a while, a lot of it from heat probably. I took a piece of U channel aluminum (about 1/8" thick) and 2 part epoxy to adhere it to the backside of the plastic. I clamped it in several places until dry. It's perfectly straight now. I looked around and couldn't find any that were straight, so resorted to this fix. I can post a pix if I if I didn't describe it clear enough.

Thanks Mike. I read something like that somewhere in a post. I will see if I can fine some channel and give that a try. Thanks a bunch.
