    The corner was missing on the bezel and these are not that easy to find nor could I get the wood grain off... SO I thought what the hell.
    3M automix repair material
    MOLOTOW Chrome pen.

    Thanks for posting these. Good stuff and gives folks a snap shot into the details of what it takes to do a top-level restoration on these cars.

    Nice job. I'd like to see a pic of the bezel when you get it installed. Bet no one will ever see it.

    I thought I had put a photo which illustrated the view from the front.

    I like the color of the MOLOTOW Chrome pen.

    Looks great! I'm planning a similar repair on mine. When I bought my car the bezel was literally snapped in half, right at the shift indicator. I was able to epoxy it back together and add some reinforcement on the back. Repairing the corners is next.

    Can you post more about the 3M automix?
