krylon fusion paint, get it from napa or maybe auto zone. if your radio bezel has that rubbery finish on it like mine does, id say sand it all off. as for the vents, i didnt sand mine before i painted them and they turned out perfect

Walmart has Krylon Fusion paint. Me, personnally I'd leave the bezel alone.
