That's awesome, should market those! I just paid $100 for a bezel recently and it took months to even find one.
Hi,Installed new 3D printed instrument bezel by my new friend, Belgian. It is identical to my old one, except the mounting points are not broken. It even has the casting marks from the original. Plastic is much stronger than the original.

Yesterday I tried the chemical stripper approach to cleaning off the old cracked lacquer on the wood shifter trim (as an experiment). Took a long time to find actual methylene chloride which actually works, and it did an ok job. However I ended up chipping a fair amount of the wood veneer off the wood substrate, which was a bummer.
So now my plan is to take off all the veneer and try overlaying a brushed metal-look vinyl wrap on the substrate. This will definitely be a different look and I’ll need to get something that compliments the gray plastic but doesn’t just blend in. I’ve given some thought to taking some measurements and 3D modeling the trim piece so that I could get it 3D printed (and using that as a substrate for vinyl overlays) but I think that would only be worth the effort if others would use it. Any interest from the crowd here?
