Just a question that I can't find the answer to. I'm replacing my 66' 5-gauge bezel and the old lens was in such that the speedo lens is concave, or curves in, instead of convex. This looks wrong to me....Can someone confirm?

Thanks in advance!

The original may have had a slight curve. The repo lenses seem flat
and my memory of those is also that they are flat.

original definitely curved slightly. My lens is original FOMOCO. I just don't know which way it goes. Curve out or in?
And, just the speedo part is curved.The smaller gauges are flat...thanks

The original center lens is indeed concave. The repros I have seen are dead-on correct.
