Anyone seen these yet?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2009...ptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories

I just dont get it...are there holes in the bezel for accent or something? OR are my eyes playing tricks on me? If there are holes..wtf is the point of that..wouldnt you want to cover the whole bezel? (i hate when people come out with useless shit)

Also anyone know how hard it is to pull these fogs out? I want to paint the bezel to surroung trim to match the headlight better. If its too difficult..i might just refel to this bezel and make it a quick little project to fill the holes and paint the whole thing to macth the car headlight. What do you guys think?

Anyone know how to stip the chrome off? (aircract paint stripper maybe?)


Oh and ANYONE know if I could get the Toyota emblem to be more of a chrome black then shiny black?

That's pretty cool looking.

There are no holes in the bezel, they're "dents". Our stock housings have them. I don't think you could strip that chrome if it's what the plastic was made from. If it's not, dunno how to strip it. As for coloring your emblem, high-gloss black paint would do the trick.

Those dents are black though..not chrome..leaving me with the impression that there are holes in the chrome. The chrome is put on there through electrical attraction (how chrome is usually put on there). You think high gloss black paint would do it for sure?

For a putty, I'd use a model kind. Not only can you sand it, you can paint it after priming it.

Yes, high gloss black paint could do the trick, maybe toss some metallic black in there for good measure. Be sure to sand whatever you want to paint first. I'd try the high gloss on a similar plastic before I paint something on my car. Prep, prime, mix, test, etc. and see if you like it.

I'm thinking about painting it with the Duplicolor Metalcast Smoke Spray. I think it will look very good. I will let you know about the outcome.
