I had the gauge cluster surround refinished from my ‘64 Cyclone. I had it “chromed” which is actually a process called vacuum metalizing. It does look like chrome but it is not real durable. There is another process out there where a “chrome” finish can be sprayed on just about any substrate. https://spectrachrome.com/
If I had to do it again I would try the spectrachrome process on the gauge panel, years ago I used this process on some side light housings from a restoration I was doing on one of my microcars, it still looks OK 17 years later.
