    Anyone have a good lead on chrome switch plate covers for a 380 Sundancer? Only place I’ve found so far is wanting to charge $50 a piece.

    Got a picture? I've had stuff made by a local machine fab company.

    Vimar sticker shock pushed me toward the plastic versions. IIRC, the metal ones were under $40 from Imtra, but still... I chose the brushed nickel finish and they look fine - it's really not a part that needs to be metal.

    In hindsight, I wish I had just covered them with vinyl wrap. I could've bought the material for less than the price of even one plastic cover plate.

    Yep, my '97 400DA has only 3-module plates.

    I sanded all of the gold off of the bezels. I then painted with a nickel paint. They look great!
