    Have the originals redone or buy repro?? The cost appears to be about equal

      Try this place, Vacuum Orna-metal. Talk to Frank. I had 2 thumbwheel radio dials done and really like the quality, turn around & price.

        Yep. They did the instrument cluster bezel for my RR. Excellent service and quality. The turn-time was only about half of what they quoted me and the finished product was top shelf.

              I bought my restored dash panel and glovebox from @moparsteve636. Highly recommended.

                  You have a few good options
                  1. I have been restoring these for the last few years. Here are some pics of how they turn out. Not
                  OE Gold but great for a high end restoration.
                  2. If your originals are in excellent shape, you can send to the "Vacuum orna-metal co" and they will do a great job.
                  3. Buy new ones
                  Thanks,
                  Steve
