Just FYI

I happened upon this thread from 11 years ago where even then people were JB welding new tabs onto their bezels because they were so hard to find

And 13 years ago people were already talking about getting a new batch manufactured

https://packardinfo.com/xoops/html/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?post_id=89009

So I imagine you will sell quite a few of these 😀

Very interesting. Fred of Max Merritt just ordered 10 pieces as well and he's shipping the nos sample (hopefully next week).

I'll update this thread as soon as I get it.

Hi all,

Just a quick update. The NOS bezel is on its way from Fred of Max Merritt. I should have it by the end of the week.

Thanks,

Update:

Nos bezel is now being sent by Don (PackardDon). The one sent bt Fred at max merritt was lost in the mail in late Sept unfortunately.

I estimate production to start first week in November. I will update this thread with harder dates as I firm them up.

Thanks
Crin

Crin what are you going to do about the tiny plastic piece that comes with the bezel? Can't remember if it is easily removed.

I'm sure no one would care if a new one is not included with the repros, but the light is supposed to shine thru there so having it as part of the casting would not be the most ideal.

To be honest I have NO clue why such a piece was even included in the first place...

The NOS ones did not come with it either but the original from the existing bezel should be easy to install. The piece is just flat translucent plastic and there is a little bit of bent wire behind it holding it into its slot.
