nice tips! i used a large phillips head first..nothing
then a phillips with a rubber band... nothing
then a phillips with athletic tape around it (sticky side out) ...nothing

if you guys have ever heard of "shoe goo" ..im thinking about putting some on my stripped screw and letting it dry, then using a phillips again.

I WANT MY HEADLIGHT BEZELS OUT ALREADY. lol

Tip and Ring I used a couple of coats of Duplicolor Black Out on my bezels and KC Highlights and footman until they looked like a kind of titanium color. Looked different, not quite chrome, but not quite black either.

Black interiors make you feel like you are sitting in an oven - and they look like caves

ac99wrangler What would you guys suggest are a good set of inserts?
04-17-2012 06:04 AM
Rolf I also have a black one but hated the chrome headlight bezels and spotlight surrounds. They are all black now.

I do however like a brushed steel/aluminium with the black.
