    Check your local welding/fabricating shop.

    How small do you need? I've got some small pieces lying around I'd give you for the cost of shipping.

    Does anyone have a sheet to fit over my gauge bezel, maybe 9" X 20" or something around that size?

    check your local welding / fabrication shops, DONT go to lowes or places like that unless you take the vaseline with you. Many of the fab shops will have scrap laying around that they will sell cheap if not just give you.

    Excuse me...Would you mind removing your import from under my chevy?

    nope, sorry no pics. just be sure not to hit the plate with a wire wheel of any kind. stuff loses its lustre faster than an old man with a hard on (can i say that)
