    They don’t exist that I can find. You’re only option is to use someone like the company above or find an NOS one (which I have) OR if you look in my build thread I restored mine myself by taping it off and spraying it with silver or aluminum paint. The details are in my build thread. Mine came out matching the factory finish very closely. If you did not see them side by side you wouldn’t know the difference.

    Below are 2 different ways I have done it. I would try the first way, first as that got me the best results. The 3rd link isn’t to pics of my NOS bezel for comparison.

    Stupid $$$$.....I want to sell it to someone doing a true concourse restoration as I suspect I have one of the only ones left and it would best serve a trailer queen.

    If you have stupid $$$$ then PM me!
