    Hi Everyone. My 81 camaro had the radio hole cut out for a modern radio and I wanted to install an original. I went on Ebay and bought one while I was at work. There seemed to be only one version when I was looking so I found one and bought it...... oops

    My car has the Seatbelt light in the dash, not on the lower panel bezel. My dahs looks like this one (took this pic from the internet):

    But the one I bought looks like this (again took from the internet):

    I havent taken anything apart yet so not sure if the extra area just shoves up inside the dash, but did I bone myself or can I just modify the new one to fit? Seems like the panel like the one in the top picture is much harder to find.

    The one on the top picture is from a later year car,like 79 80,81---- the lower is from a 73-77, would also look like a 70-72,with out the seat belt lit, The lower one is most likely worth as much or more than the 80's type cause of harder to fine.you will need to keep looking
