What color?

Radio bezel is peeling and has been for a while. I'm just not sure gloss black will look all that good, but maybe I'm wrong?

Suggestions for colors?

and also, should I sand it down then primer, paint, clear? or wetsand in between one of those? I want it to come out good the first time haha.

I used body-matched PPG paint. Looks the same as the outside.

Yeah I'm just not sure if gloss black would be boring. I haven't seen any rangers with it yet, so I'm not sure how it'd look.

Candy red.

Would look so much better if I had a darker grey interior.

All painted interior MUST match your exterior paint... just my opinion.

Here is my black bezel that matches the outside since you haven't seen a gloss black one. The prep was remove all the rubber stuff, than sand, adhesion promoter, prime, sand, paint, clear, buff and polish.

That is SICK! How'd you do the flames? Airbrush?


IMO, doesnt have to match the exterior paint, it has to match or contrast with it. If I painted mine silver to match my truck, it would have looked horrible.

I kinda like one I saw on here that was like duplicolor graphite with a slight texture to it. it was a flat color. I don't know if I really like the gloss. I think it'd look weird in my truck because I don't really wanna paint a lot of my interior and I don't want one thing all shiny and the rest normal...
