Where can you buy the convex glass for the speedometer and clock for a '46 Chevy? I've not found anybody stocking these. I can get flat glass locally, but would rather have it right. Thanks in advance guys.

I invest my money in precious metals, mostly rust!

Thanks to the HAMB, I have an answer for those who may also need the glass, Ronnell Clock Co. The glass is cheap and comes in many sizes. Now to figure out how to drill a hole in one piece for the set stem.

Thanks for the info. I would think that the company could drill the glass before they sent it to you.

Find a Coke, wine, or beer bottle to test it, but I believe a chain saw sharpening stone for a dremel would work. It cut through a broken off tap that was stuck in my engine block (not broken off by me). I think they were like $3 at Home Depot and worth every penny.
