Arrow Different HVAC backplate

I was curious if any HVAC back plates are available. I have seen a bunch of the black plates and speedo plates in past group buys. I was actually looking for something similar to stock with the white or light gray background to match my gauges & main cluster.

Does anyone know if any of these are available? My only other option is buying a new one from Lotus.

Arrow No New Products

Unfortunately new products on this forum seem to be slowing down greatly.

Shoot a PM to @Sugeray . He makes custom gauge and HVAC faces. I picked up his last black hvac face a few weeks ago and have ordered a black custom gauge face to match. Idk if he plans to make more hvac faces but doesn’t hurt to ask. The gauge face he’s still making in different color/styles but will take a couple months.

This is pretty cool, I think it looks nice with the dark gauge cluster. The lighter color of the HVAC works better with the lighter clusters, imo.
