    Were the 1970 Skylark Headlight Bezels originally painted silver around headlight, like the 1969s were? I've included a picture of a '69 so that you can see what I mean.

    Thank you,

    Thank you Hugger, but I'm referring to the recessed, concave area right around the headlight itself.

    For Skylarks, in 1967 this area was painted flat black, in 1968 dull silver, in 1969 dull silver, and in 1972 flat black. I'm just not sure about 1970 (and 1971).

    I'm just trying to save $400 by not having this area refinished by the rechrome shop! If it was originally beautiful chrome and not painted as were the other years, then the cost to restore my headlight bezels just went up considerably!!

    The recessed area you are referring to is chrome. $$$$$$$$$$
