  12. General Instrument Bezel Repair with Mods

    This bezel was pretty rough. I removed all paint and chrome via careful wet sanding and brushing. I heard brake fluid would have done the job overnight, oh well live and learn. I take small projects like this home and work a couple hours in the wee morning, then a couple hours on the car shell during the day while at work. As you can see, crack repair was necessary. I conducted bond tests with several adhesives including epoxy, Super type glues and E6000. E6000 had the best adhesion by...

    All the credit for this goes to Peter Bates. The brackets supplied by Year One are a great product but come without instructions.
