Radio Bezel Paint

I was at Autozone yesterday and I saw the Duplicolor "Color Shift" chameleon paint. I was thinking of picking up a can and painting my radio bezel with it. What do you guys think? Cool? Or just really gay?

"It was blue then I stopped at the light and it changed to red." Color changing paint is baller!

I picked some of that stuff up a few years ago. We ended up using it on the diff covers of my bro-in-laws XJ. Turned out pretty good!

That'd be sick.. then do seat inserts and then the rest of the dash and you could have a chameleon "SVT" ranger

If you do it, do more then just the one piece. Do the door panels too. Make it subtle though, don't go overboard and it might be ok.
