    Hey, i am looking to replace my stock dash bezel but dont know were to get a new one. I looked in an LMC catalog and they have every type of bezel for blazers except for the 81s and 82s, will a 77 style fit mine, by looks of the pictures in the magazine, the 77 has all of the component holes but the newer style pictures dont show them all. So if any one has an idea of were to get one or if the 77 would fit please let me know. Thanks.
    Cory.

    I am sorta wondering the same thing, except I can't find any aftermarket brushed alum bezels like the factory silverados. I think all the bezels are the same and will "bolt on"

    I made my own from real brushed aluminum. My brothers father in-law owns a cabinet shop and he works with all types of laminates and I was hangin out there one day and I noticed a sheet of 1/16" thick 4x8 of brushed aluminum and asked about redoing my dash. I rremoved all the worn originals and traced them on the new aluminum sheet, he went thru with a tool he uses to trim formica laminate and cut out identical copies of the bezel, dash and door trim, needless to say it looks 100% better than original since the real aluminum shines when exposed to light at certain angles.. heres a pic. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    That bezel, is it chrome or black? Does it have any cracks or is it in good condition? I would like some info about it, and i am probably interested in it. Let me know more about it, cuz i really need one. Thanks again.
