Painted radio bezel, WA

Hey. I'm looking for a painted radio bezel. More specifically, a black matte one. I don't want a glossy black bezel. And I'd like a bezel from a Ranger: one that has the 4x4, the foglight, the cigar lighter, and the extra 12v plug. I don't want any electronics with the bezel, just the bezel because I have all the switches and plugs. Pictures of available bezels would be nice. Or if you have a carbon fiber radio bezel with the 4x4/fog/etc. then I'd take that also, haha. I'm not really expecting anyone to be selling one of those, though. Thanks!

No, sorry. I'd like one without the rear wiper switch. Thanks though!

I may have one in a bit...

I'm switching my old one for one I just modded with 3 OEM fog switches, but mine only has one 12v port (that needs to be epoxied back on).
It currently still has the rubbery junk on it, not to mention it's still in the truck, but after I remove it I plan on fixing the 12v outlet & removing the rubbery stuff... but it is a 4x4 & NO wiper switch/indicator to fill in.

Not sure how a flat paint will work though, I just painted one SATIN black with several coats of SATIN clear and it still looks glossy to me.

Let me know if you think you'd be interested.

Does a satin color look matte?

Does it have all 4 holes that I mentioned in the original post (is it a Ranger one and not an Explorer one)? If you can paint it a matte black I'd be more than interested. Thanks!

I'll try to get some pics tonight & post them for you to check out.

It has the 4x4 switch & 12v cig outlet on the left side & a fog light hole on the right side. Shouldn't be too tough to add a second 12v outlet above the fog switch though, just drill a hole & screw in a cig outlet.

I still need to epoxy the 12v backing back on.

*THREAD JACK*

Do you still have it hanging around?

I've got another project in mind & I could use an extra one to experiment on.
