Looks good. How do you get all the bezel's out? I am not a fan of chrome at all, and have been thinking about tinting all the chrome in my truck (i.e. black chrome).

Yeah that's what I wanted to do but I wasn't to happy with it

Pop off the molding (like what's in the floorboard) then you gotta take out the whole vent assembly they come out forward....then there's separate tabs for the bezels and be careful with the cup holder one.....it's pretty thin

I also want some ideas for painting the end moldings EVERYONE

Looks great! Did you guys strip all the chrome off first before painting them?

Everything on my truck that I have painted over the chrome I give a bleach bath to first and it eventually takes all the chrome off and leave you with just the plastic.

i'm guessing using bleach is easier/faster and probably cleaner than sanding right?
