Oh, forgot... the bezel looks nice.

What kind of primer did you use?

I just painted one with Krylon Fusion Satin & Krylon Satin clear, but it still looks shiny.

morris the stuff on our bezel (07+) is pretty easy. the 12v plug may or may not be a b*tch. I just did mine a couple months ago.

hey guys, its not that hard to take everything off. screws for most, and then the 12volt you gotta hold one part and turn it. it screws off. hard to explain, but youll know what i mean when you do it.
