    I was putting in my stereo and cutting my guage bezle and the dang thing broke. I have a 76 and I've never seen a good one in a junk yard. Where can I get one for fairly cheap - less than $50. It doesn't have to be stock black but it would be o.k.

    Thanks.

    I would kill for the 81' bezel. Is the original with the brushed aluminum. I ask because the previous owner put a cheap plastic repo in mine. Also, is it set up for AC and the wiper switch.

    I know I am second in line for this, but if 76chevy can't use the bezel I will buy it. Didn't want it to look like I was trying to sneek in there ahead of 76chevy.

    Thanks for not trying to sneak in.

    Hey guys, I need to know if those bezles accommodate AC. My truck has AC. Thanks.

    I did some checking with my LMC catalog and I hope it isn't wrong because it says niether of the offered bezels will fit a 76.

    I'm not sure why the 73 won't fit but it says 75-77 on the years listed for the bezels on trucks.

    It looks like newer one is different in the park indicator area.

    Well guys, I'm sorry, I'll have to turn you down for the moment unless someone can prove me other wise. My LMC catalog is the Summer edition so it might not be up to date.

    Thanks anyway.

    There's always a decent selection up for auction on ebay. If you don't find the one you want, just wait a few weeks...there's always at least 1, most of the time 4 or 5.
