I want suggestion on color...

So im getting ready to repaint my radio bezel... My Trucks black and the interior theme is grey/black. I wanna paint the bezel something different besides the boring *** black but im not sure.. any suggestions??

TLDR: What color should I paint my radio bezel?

Instead of painiting it, have you considered a carbon fibre vinyl wrap?? IIRC that looks sharp

How about water transfer printing? Then he could get creative.

That...actually sounds very appealing to me. Anyone remember where that guy got the wrap? Like 3M or something?

Mcleary316 ,
If you haven’t done this already.

The wrap sounds interesting and would look good but wraps can become BORING after a while.

With a blk truck and the dk gray/blk interior, OEM color could be the FX4 Silver.
The FX4, LvL II, used the silver color on the Cntr Bezel and around the Speed-o area, maybe elsewhere but I do not know for sure.
Get a serial number for one of the guys with an FX4 Level II and get “SEMS" Paint to match.

Also if painting use an Adhesion Promoter before painting OR read what SEMS Paint tells you to do.


p.s.
Oh ya… I do have the Dash Part that goes around the instrument Panel area in Dk Gray/Silver, like an FX4 LvL II, maybe, ’03 to be sure.
Thk’g $50 + shipping.

I second the carbon fiber wrap... it looks pretty sweet if done right! 3M does make it.

The Carbon Fiber would look good.
Is it easy to do or where to do it ?

Not difficult, just time consuming to do it right.

Seriously--if you're thinking about carbon fiber, do yourself a favor and just have it hydroimaged (dipped). I wasted a crap-load of money on 3M DiNoc--I should have had it dipped in the first place.

You won't be disappointed.
