Cool. I'd be interested to see them. Especially the passenger dash vent.

Assuming you're meaning Olds A/G47 tails. I think you mean the Chinese are working on the new molds... :) Curious about those. Wonder if they'll actually fit correctly. The Chinese quality control measurements for those things are +/- 15%. :oops: Think about it. Only would need 2 styles of taillights to cover the entire 81-88 2 door lineup. Whoever can pull that piece of reproduction off will win the internet and likely be flush with cash.

Well, this is a step in the right direction. Even trying the bezels as well. Although I hope they tweak those better. They don't seem ready just yet as far as fitment.

But they still will be listed not fitting Cutlass Supreme.

Hello John! Do you have any updates? Thank you!
So I went back to check with craft customs and they asked if I could send them a picture of the trim I said yes OR you could google 1987 442 Sheffield grey trim and get some great pictures off the internet. They didn’t have the time to do that… hmmmm I’m thinking that says it all. I’m still going to have them refinish my steering wheel.

Thank you John. I just bit the bullet and sent them a set that needed a complete restoration. Here is the information that they gave me...

1-$250 Radio Bezel
2-$300 A/C vent bezel
2-$225 shift bezel
2-$250 A/C vent bezel
2-$300 Logo A/C vent bezel

Turnaround is about 4-5 weeks.

They did a really good job on my steering wheel, so I anticipate the same quality. I will let the group know in 4-5 weeks! Here is my steering wheel....

I'd be very interested in seeing how well that turns out.

Craft Customs really came through with a great restoration of my dash and console plaques/bezels. The first picture reflects the before. I am just thrilled with how they turned out!! Best $1325 I could have spent on the parts. The best part is they clear coated them to hopefully prevent the chrome from wearing off.

A tad disappointing they didn't chrome the top edges of the gear selector and shifter slot. Other than that, it looks pretty good. Much much better than the "before" shots.

That’s amazing, I wouldn’t have thought they could get so close. Game changer for guys looking to have these pieces redone. I’d pay that all day for a good looking set. They even changed the wood to the brushed aluminum. I’m going to have to get back in touch with them. Thanks
