    Is the left end of the basketwave cut straight or folded like the right.

    For the cutouts and the structure one may only guess from your picture if they are right or not

    Looks right to me, here is an original smooth vinyl one I just sold. With the larger circular holes it should take the chrome trim piece with the recessed center bar that installs from the front.

    I agee with Dirk, originals had edges cut straight. And with time, (at least) Basketweave shrunk, exposing a little bit the metal it was glued on. As on my car.

    This above looks Repro and edges are folded/glued, which imo never was done so in period.

    Right side of the faceplate was folded over here is the back of an original faceplate pictured above. Same thing on my '71 Targa basket weave.

    Here are examples of factory installed radios and you can see that the right side of the faceplate has the material folded over. If your material doesn't fold over the right side it was probably dealer installed or material was changed out.
