Black center panel with gauges question
I was looking for a new black center dash panel with gauges but all the repro units I have seen do not have the chrome ring around each gauge.

Did the original black panels have the chrome rings just like the wood grain ones?
Mine doesn't have it on the panel.. it's on each gauge.

Interesting, I didn't noticed that about the repo ones. Mine was originally the wood grain with chrome rings around the 3 guages.

73 Convertible - 351C/4V CC heads/4bolt/forged flat tops/comp 270/rhodes/mallory unilite/tri-power/hookers/glasspacks/c6/3.50 limited slip/Gear Vendors/Global West sub frames, strut rods and shelby style traction bars/ Rear sway bar/tilt steering (not original)

Pics of modifications included in:
there are 2 versions of the center panel that were repoped for the deluxe interioronly one has chrome rings for the gauges.

The wood grain chrome trim is the deluxe version
the camera case without wood insert is the standard interior version.

the original camera case black version for the standard interior didn't have chrome rings because the chrome was from the entire panel being chrome plated.

on the deluxe version the entire panel is chrome plated, then masked sprayed satin black, with highlights around the edges and chrome rings around the gauges left showing chrome. then the lower half of of the deluxe panel is painted a dark brown to try and match the wood insert decal. then finally the wood decal is placed over much of the panel from the top around the map light down to the radio plate cover.

some places are selling the black camera case version with the wood decals given loose in the box. this is the incorrect version for the deluxe interior.

There are 4 versions of the center panel for the dash board that have been reproduced.
