Default C4 Parts Manufacturer

Anyone know the name of the Manufacturer who reproduces parts for the Corvette. I have been trying to find a Speedometer/Tachometer instrument cluster bezel for my 87 and no one is manufacturing one at this time. I am trying to find out if they are going to make them.

I doubt you will find anyone making them new. I have seen analog style gauge clusters through places like Ecklers, Corvette Central or somewhere comparable that are supposed to be plug-and-play but they're around $1000 each. You likely will need to find a used cluster and I've seen them for sale before. Places like Bantee.com may be able to refer you to someone with one for sale plus Bryan does repair clusters.


Hope that helps, good luck.

Thanks for the reply but there is nothing wrong with the cluster. It's the bezel that goes in front of the cluster. Two corners are broken off. It is held on with 5 screws. if you take it off you are looking at the front of the cluster. With that removed you can access
the four bulbs from the front too change them. There are four silver tabs In front of the bulbs. The bezel is what I would like to replace because of the broken corners.

That is what I am going to use too cover mine. It will cover the broken corners.
I found a used one on eBay but it had two broken corners also.

If you have cracks or missing parts, check out:

I've used that to repair some cracks and make missing tabs on my bezel and it's held up very well.

Thanks for the info. I will be doing that in Spring. We just had 10 inches of snow and it's 17 degrees out.
