Default How To: Paint Radio Bezel

Written By: STL

Discussion Thread: How To: Paint radio bezel

Tools Needed
  • 7mm socket
  • flat blade screw driver
  • masking tape
  • your choice of paint color
  • sand paper

7MM bolt holding bezel on remove those

Use your fingers to pry it off the dash or use a flat blade screw drive and pry it off

Remove the connectors for the 12v

Remove connector for the cig lighter

remove the foglight connection

Unplug radio antenna also remove the radio harness

Now I dont have a stock radio but it removes the same way
pull up on one side to release this tab and gently push radio toward front then repeat on other side and radio will come out the front of the bezel

Remove foglight switch 2 Phillips head screws

Now starting at the bottom of the vent release the tabs holding the vent on once they are released to do the top ones

Now u have this

Remove 12v plug

Stuff tape down in there covering the metal parts of it

Cig lighter cap wont come off so tape around it

Then your ready to paint scuff up the bezel with a light sand paper there is a rubber type stuff on there it will come off easily

If you don't want to remove the rubber just clean real good with soap and water let dry and spray away
