Carbon Fiber Bezzel

Ok, So i was at a car and truck show a few weeks back and i was looking at the difference between a mazda B4000 and My 03 4.0L ranger, theres not much still good ole mazda and ford but i seen something that caught my eye, the radio bezzel on the mazda was Carbon fiber look and it was stock so i made sure it was the same an of course it is, so the ranger bezzel was peeling and brought it to ford for warranty but they cant get the carbon fiber look for the rangers so they just orderd me a new silver metalic, but i was wondering if i order one through mazda i dont see why it wont fit but i wanna just make sure it does before i go and spend the money on it to find out it dont work haha cause i know there like sister trucks so im crossin my fingers here!

stx doesn't come in 4x4, though...

so you will have to modify the bezel, then...

tenically you can get sheets of carbon fiber use your own bezel as a mold and make your own REAL carbon fiber bezel for most likely cheaper then that stock one. granted it takes some doing on your part but in the long run its worth it

Too bad its for a 2wd....blurple has a 4x4...he'll have to cut up that nice new purdy dash cover for the 4x4 switch.

I saw that carbon fiber bezel on a base model mazda 2300 at the auto show for new cars. IT WANT ONE...but not for that price he paid...I'll just have to scout the new car junk yards.
