New chrome light bezzels..MODIFIED! **PICS**
 
I recieved my new Summit chrome light bezzels yesterday. So I ran out to the garage and put them on. I stepped back..........hummmmm... Didn't look right. I mean they are good looking pieces but on my stone white the black trim really stands out compared to darker colors. So here's what I did.

I taped off the chrome edge with some painters tape

Then I sprayed the bezzels with some adhesion promoter. 2 light coats did the trick.

Now the fun begins. 4 lite coats of black acrylic paint. About 10 minutes between each coat. Then after the last coat, I let it dry about an hour. Then I peeled the tape off.

Side by side. Old vs New.

I snapped them on and here they are. I took pics of them inside the garage then out.

So now I think they look perfect. The chrome really stands out. OH yea, I almost forgot, I put the HEMI badge on too.
