Hi, try a website called Somerford mini in the UK.  They have lots of ex-rover stock and plenty of genuine new dashboard rings you require.  They are about £6 each excluding shipping.  I'm in the UK and got some a few moths back.  Pretty sure they do international postage.  I've included a link below and they are part number 18

Yup,  those are the cones i was trying to describe, George.
Seems like quite a bit of work to get a set.. but i'll keep an eye out.. still chasing the bad ground to the dash.
thanks,

The "cones" on my dash are aluminum and held in with glue, I would try The Mini Forum there may be an aftermarket source or someone who removed them from a junk yard car, so called "breakers" over there. I've never seen them offered from the usual mini parts suppliers. You could also search eBay.co.uk there's lots of classic mini stuff listed maybe you'll get lucky, this link is a listing for the whole dash.

Not exactly sure what you are after, but look here:  http://www.minimania.com/catPage/9-66/9/66/1/Instruments-All-2-Clock-and-PRE92-3-Clock-Clusters, and on the page after that, also, to find part numbers, at least. Whether they are still available new is another matter!

Hello all,
  I have my dash out as i chase a bad ground.  While i'm there, I'd like to replace a trim piece that goes around each of the 3 main gauges.  It's effectively a medium brown cone that makes the transition from the flat dash face, to the clear Smithe gauge face. I can't for the life of me find the part for sale, or in any parts diagram.  anyone have a clue what i'm trying to describe?

Thanks,
-Nathan
