Center dash bezel
#1
    Does someone have a picture of a stock never been painted center dash bezel for a 72 black standard interior Mach 1? This is what mine looks like What color black is the center dash bezel supposed to be, flat, satin or metallic black charcoal? It looks like someone painted it all some kind of black at one time. Looks like they sprayed everything. Is there supposed to be a chrome strip showing? Thanks, Ryan.

Matte black with chrome or some had woodgrain decal in center to match door panel
inserts on deluxe interior cars.

Others here have more experience than I but hope that helps.

This custom mixed black by SEM matches. https://www.npdlink.com/store/products/m...-2979.html
The dark charcoal metallic is used on the metal dash parts and the steering column. https://www.npdlink.com/store/products/m...-2979.html

Thanks, Chuck. I did use the met.black charcoal on the dash and metal pieces. On the center dash bezel is the whole thing supposed to be black or is there supposed to be a chrome strip showing? This is on a standard black interior no wood grain.

I believe the chrome should be on all the bezels including the standard interiors.

That chrome would be tough to fix. New ones are available for 200 bucks or so. Check on CJ Pony Parts, probably a picture.

I seem to think that the ones with smooth faces are supposed to have some kind of veneer on them (wood grain, specifically - although, I did mine in carbon fiber). The all black ones should have camera case texture where the veneer is supposed to go.

I can't remember if the camera case pieces have the chrome molding or not (I'm thinking not), but the wood grain (deluxe) panels do have the chrome trim.

I'm not the expert, so I could be wrong. When some of the purists chime in, we'll know for sure. thumb

Since the one in the picture is showing chrome through the dings, and the center part is untextured, my guess is that it should have wood grain veneer and chrome accents.

I'm trying to avoid buying a new one. The picture they show has the chrome strip. Since its a repro, I didn't know if its correct. I really hope someone will post a picture of an original that has not been painted. Thanks to all that have posted so far.Ryan.

The CJ bezel is correct.

A quick and dirty fix is to use Chrome mylar tape. Easiest place to get it is your local hobby shop, it's known as Monokote Trim Sheet. You'll need a straight edge and a razor blade to cut it to width. Takes practice, but if done correctly is very hard to tell.

Thanks for the replies. I guess I'll try the mylar tape first before I spring for a new one.
