Radio Bezel ........ peeling?

Well its been happening since I had the truck, I think it's just sucky materials used on the bezel. So I thought about (once it stops raining/snowing/whatever else it may do now) is going to michaels and getting some vinyl so I can recover the bezel. Any thoughts or alternatives to this?

You mean the rubberish coating is peeling off? You can just peel it all off and have it a glossier black plastic. Or like said sand it down thoroughly with a light grit after you have the rest of the coating off and spray it with krylon fusion or something else meant for plastic. Mine is peeling as well and is getting repainted when I get a double din and have to do some chopping.

Or use DuPont Plastic Adhesion Promoter (spray on) and use any good automotive paint that matches the interior, like SEMS Paint.

Krylon fusion

Painted mine with the Krylon Fusion, came out great! Used it a few times now with very good results.
