I've done several.
First & most time consuming thing is to strip all the rubbery junk off.
Sand down to 600+ grit wet/dry.
Wash thoroughly.
Wipe down with alcohol.
Let dry.
Paint.
Wet sand.
Paint.
Wet sand...etc. until paint is perfect.

I use Krylon Fusion gloss or satin, although the satin isn't that much different than the gloss finish.

The 2wd bezels must be made of gold.... the last one I bought on evilBay cost me $30.00 and that was a steal.
Do you need a 2wd or 4x4?
I've got a few I'm modding.

I've seen pics of your radio setup before. I've never noticed how good your trim bezel looks.
