Detailing a dash bezel

Iím thinking that somewhere I have seen some type of pen/marker/paint to put the silver/chrome plating finish back on the raised letters above the headlight switch or on the dash emblem. Iím not looking at a bezel right now they may be above the wiper switch or both. I flipped through a classic ind. catalog and never seen anything like that. I spotted the speedometer needle paint, it wasnít on that page. It sounds like a Eastwood item maybe but I donít know what you would call it. You know how it is, if it didnít come out right it would have been better left alone. Thanks for any info. Darin

Hey TKCR and jetmech, my chrome pen came in the mail . I opened it and put the chrome edges back on a dash emblem. It worked great. I thought it would be more like a silver but it is really chrome looking. Iím impressed , feeling like a pro. Thanks again for the great tip jetmech. Darin

For what it's worth, they carry those chrome pens (and some other application styles) at Hobby Lobby. If I remember correctly, they are on the same isle as the plastic model kits. I did the chrome on my boy's pine derby car with one.

I got mine also, but not for the Dash Bezel. I used it, and very impressed.

I used a silver Sharpie a few years ago. Still looks like new.
