Not cleaning or prepping it right... same thing you did to the center console probably.

Sand with 600 grit.
Wash with a water based adhesive remover/prep solvent
Let air dry
Wipe with tac cloth
Then paint.

We used silicone remover as our water based. Just go to somewhere like keystone and ask for water based prep wash. Any solvent remover will do NON ACID solvent remover.

And if you want to be fancy prime/seal it.

Doubt you'll get it at either of them. Look for body shop supply places.

I don't need bezel, its the vent fins. But so far I broke 2 of the fins so I need 2 of them but they have to be the specific fins.
