mudslinger5000 I took mine off, sanded them a little bit, and painted them with plasti-dip paint. That was two years ago and they havent faded, chipped, or anything.

yoopone Paint. Used Rust O Leum satin black after thoroughly sanding bezels. Stuck the screws into cardboard to hold them and painted them also. Looks awesome now. Did a ton of trail riding this summer afterward and do not see any stone chips at all.

Or you can hit them with some touch up paint once they are installed.... I have a ton of black touch up from our last 4 vehicles..... All black.

Wish I'd thought of that. Eh the silver screws look kinda cool though.

Awesome! I was apprehensive at first, but I was glad I took the plunge, as well.

MikeMTJ I personally like my chrome headlight bezels. I won't add any chrome to my jeep, but I'm leaving mine be.

Yes, black plastic. Much better than touching up, IMO....

InvertChaos I painted mine this morning. Scratched them up with a Scotch brite pad then hit them with rustoleum universal flat black. They came out nicely.

2003x I re-painted my trim pieces today a semi-gloss black.
08-17-2011 02:44 PM
kfdjason7620 I bought the black bezels and the black snap in grill inserts at the same time, whole new look!

Dewry636 I scuffed mine a little with some 1000 grit sandpaper and used the spray can rustoleum touch-up primer/paint/clearcoat. Holding up nicely still after 5 months.
08-16-2011 06:50 PM
2003x Yup, mine were Chrome. I sprayed them with Rustoleum semi gloss black.
08-16-2011 04:43 PM
Skyhawk32 I shot mine flat black looks great. Just give them a good sanding.
08-16-2011 04:36 PM
jtaghansen Yes paint them. Crome does not belong on a jeep..... As soon as I get some time I will be painting mine along with the crome fuel door.
08-16-2011 03:21 PM
Off_Road_Teacher Ok will do
08-16-2011 03:13 PM
HELENKELLERMRI Get some before and after pics. I was thinking of painting mine.
08-16-2011 10:46 AM
Off_Road_Teacher Ok thanks guys, I'll do that today
08-16-2011 10:42 AM
JeepnJim Painted mine with Krylon. Turned out nicely. I painted the ring around the headlight as well
08-16-2011 10:35 AM
john4ward I took mine off last week and gave them a squirt of aerosol bedliner.... they look great.... quick and very easy.
