    Sorry if this has been asked a squillion times, I am on my mobile phone and for some reason, the search feature is not displaying.

    Anyway.

    We are working on an episode showing how to assemble and install a 1970 NPD dash pad and lower trim. Our glovebox was in need of replacement as was the a/c control section under the steering wheel, both of which came from OER with chrome detail. The original stuff had no such detail that I can see. The back of one original is marked "bright". So, which way do I go to be more correct? Any help for this neophyte would be humbly appreciated.

    I think they all came with the chrome stripping when new.It wears off over time.I redid mine with a Krylon silver leafing pen.It turned great!

    Not all cars had the bright trim on lower part of dash. I believe it was only cars with deluxe interior.
