I have been thinking of re-painting my bezel's red to match my truck but wasnt sure how it would look.

Nice job.
Nice spot for the sticker to, I've got one there as well.

Black N Blue are you a Sonic Blue Ranger?

Or is that the Medium Blue or whatever they call it?

I cannot find Sonic Blue paint ANYWHERE...guess I'll have to order it from the dealer for like $25 for a $5 can of paint.

http://underdog-performance.com/id81.html There you go. But hey I was thinking about painting these as well but is there any problems with the paint peeling or cracking or anything? That was my biggest holdback.

Man...you lucky easy color people....black, red, white. Man, the only colors that look half way right in my truck is the Duplicolor color-matched to my truck or black.

Dash looks AWESOME!! That sanding is a big pain....I know....I've dont it about 4 times.
