That looks awesome! Did you paint your radio surround as well, or is that an actual FX4 one? If it is, what paint did you use or do you know if they make anything that matches the FX4 radio bezel? I need to do this!! lol

I painted the radio bezel a while back. using the duplicolor paint that matches my stock exterior paint color. it just so happens to match the silver in the cluster very nicely!

Thanks, I'll have to check it out! Does it go on similar to the Krylon Fusion paint? I really like that stuff and it's so easy to use! When you did your bezel how did you prep it? How's it holding up?

I just sanded and cleaned it. Then used an adhesive promoter. It's holding up great cept for a chip or two from when I installed my double din. I wasn't very careful. Lol

And it's extremely easy to use

What color is it ?
When I change over to the Dual Levers and no 4x Sw I may go with a little silver.

and ALWAYS use the “Adhesion Promoter” before painting plastic parts.
