Plasti dip bezels

Hey camaro5 members. Newbie here and wanted to contribute a little something. Ive seen lots of member painted their bezels but i decided to use plasti dip and the results were pretty darn good. And the good thing is that it can come off if i ever wanted them chrome again. hope you like it

I personally wouldn't use it under the engine. Imagine if it melted and got everywhere.
