Does anyone know if a two-tone material exists, that has a faux brushed metal front and a translucent/transparent core?
My reason for asking:
A few years back I had a set of dial faces for my car cut by Pololu (brushed alu face/black core).
They were laser cut all the way through, and then I placed a white translucent sheet behind the plastic.
It worked very well and looked good:
Fast-forward a couple of years…
The needle on the speedo has now started to stick because the translucent sheet has come lose.
I can glue it back on again, but it’s bound to happen again and again.
So I thought maybe a “faux metal front/translucent core” material has become available since then?
That way I would be able to eliminate the white translucent sheet I’m using now.
Heck, maybe there was one back then too and I just couldn’t find it…
Any and all help greatly appreciated!
