Talk to headlightarmor about the tint. They have pre cut tints for every light on the camaro. As for the bezels you can paint them DIY style or RPI sells them as well as many other venders.

Im going to plasti dip my bezels, hopefully this weekend.

Plasti dip is a great alternative to having to sand your chrome for the paint. With plasti dip, you just wash them off and spray a few coats. Done.

heres my plasti-dip spray bezels.

they look really good, and are really holding up to the winter.

plus if you want to go back to chrome you just peel off the rubber coating.

I'm wondering how this flat black would look on my black 2011. I like the flat look, if I get striping it will be flat I think. anybody have pics of a black camaro with this flat black plastidip bezel?

I think maybe I'll do my bowties like this rather than fork out the $135 for them.

spent $16 at home depot and bought 100grit, 600grit along with primer and some oil flat back spray paint.

After sanding, priming, priming some more and then three coats of paint, my bezels looks exactly how I wanted them. I am very happy with the results. I got my bezels off thanks to the OP's post n video thankyou thankyou!

Did you use a primer at all or just spray the plastidip right on the chrome?
