    I have a cluster from a '78 Grand Am. It's just the base silver cluster with speedo and fuel gauge, the rest is lights. This was a floor shift car so no shift indicator. Would that work for you?

    I re-read your post. You're looking for the other piece that goes around the cluster, correct? I just saw "silver" and "dash" and missed bezel...

    The silver on mine was tired, so I bought some engine-turned (like used on Trans Ams) adhesive material off eBay and put it over the silver. I think it looks pretty good. I will post some photos this weekend, been so busy I haven't had time to download the ones in my camera.

    The engine turned looks great, Dave.
    I always like the look. I'd like to redo mine. It's a toss up between carbon fiber or engine turn.
    Did you cut it out using the bezel as a pattern?

    Yes, mine is actually 4 separate pieces, but cut from a single piece, that way, the pattern is consistent. I bought it off eBay, but the company had ALL kinds of patterns and colors. I thought about carbon fiber myself, but decided to make it look like the T/A dash. I cut the pieces, then put them on and took a sharp X-acto knife and carefully trimmed around each gauge opening and Allen screw (I thought about putting real Allen screws in for a more realistic look but decided no one but me would ever notice.
