What colour should I paint it?

Some of the paint is peeling off my bezel. My entire interior is a drab and boring sea of grey.

I need some paint ideas for my bezel to brighten things up a bit. The truck is silver, so there's many colours that will go well with silver/grey.


Gimme ideaaaarrrrrs.

Don't tempt me. I still have some Grabber Green laying around from when I painted my B2200.

I kinda want an accent colour that works well with green gauges/radio and orange needles.

I like the blue idea, and I also like reddish-orange...

Too much color just looks tacky, IMO...

The silver would look good, but I'm kinda biased towards it.

Personally I am more partial to the middle shade, I really think it will provide the proper focal poin in your truck

I totally forgot about the factory carbon fibre versions. My dad has that in his 08 but he won't trade me.

I don't even want to know how much the dealer wants, but I'll look into it. I think I'd rather go the carbnon fibre root. After searching around on the site, I also like some of the red one ones.

Hmmm. I'ma go to the dealer and bend over now.
