    Is there any interest in repro 67 taillight bezels?

    I just spent over $100k on a new cnc machine and have had a bezel scanned to give me a model. I have no idea how much these would cost, probably in the $250 each range as machined. Once I ever make some of these, I will be able to nail down costs.a

    Just hoping somebody else may want these too.

    Hi Jon,

    So we are talking 500 a pair? What material would you use? I could definitely be interested. Polished stainless or aluminum would be nice.

    I'm thinking 6061-t6 aluminum since there is so much material to come out. This is a project that will take a while because I need to focus on work, but would love to be able to offer these up. I was thinking $250 each so yeah, $500 a pair. Maybe I can bring that down a bit too, hard to know how long something like that will take to machine, plus making the fixture to flip it over and finish the face too. I know I had an old pair stripped, sanded and re-chromed and I think I had $450 into those.

    Yeah, I just had a pair stripped and re-plated too. No hurry on my end--keep us posted! Great project as far as I am concerned.

    Aluminum versions of all the pot metal trim pieces would be awesome--hood scoops, grill center piece, fender scoops............

    I'd like to see a set all done. I have a lot of pitted pot metal pieces. The last set cost me $550.
