Good morning,
Just finished up the restore on my center console on my 68, changed color from ivory to black, new shift lens, and inserts. Think it turned out well! I used vht satin black vinyl dye for the color change. I just can’t understand if they are going to reproduce parts, why can’t they make an exact reproduction? The original lens had skinnier lettering and teal colored paint around the outside edges of the acrylic. The new one does not and is extremely bright compared to the gauges. Does anyone know if this is special paint that is used on the original? What are you guys working on this weekend? Sunny and 70 degrees here in SoCal😎 View attachment 144064

The new one also has numbers instead of letters.
It looks good though.
