Default Got broken into...crap. Customization time!

Hey all,

I unfortunately was just broken into by some POS and got my amp stolen and my dash bezel ruined . However the insurance company cut me a great big fat check which is going to cover much more than the damage so, as any other enthusiast would do, I'm looking to upgrade to something cooler .

The idiot thief used a little gouging tool to try and pop the flat surround (flat piece that wraps around the sterio) from the whole bezel (what he was trying to separate was all one piece) so fortunately they didn't make off with my flip out touch screen but my bezel was ruined. I'm open for ideas on what anybody has heard/seen people do for a cool custom look on their dash. My truck is a white sport with a white/black theme so black or white would be my choice.

I found a black chrome stick on trim kit that didn't look as cheesy as the other cheap ebay ones and will cover up the damage...follow the link...

But don't really like the idea of stick-on aftermarkets in any respect and would rather have an actual piece that replaces the damaged one rather than covering it up. What do you guys think??

-Mike

That sucks you got broken into, but the opportunity to fix it as long as the damage they did was cosmetic. They have a few dash wraps or covers available like carbon fiber kit etc.. 40$ auto anything has 2 different brands. \

good luck keep us informed!

If your not a fan of stick-ons like me there are some OEM bezels on Ebay or other sites you could purchase and possibly paint to your liking.

Damn bro that sucks, but i would just get a reaplacement bezel, and fix what needs to be fixed, and maybe upgrade to a double din or something.

chili1k- Yeah thats the kind of thing I was looking at. If I were to do it do you guys think i should do a black/white, black, white, or blacked chrome? OR, like sk8noregon said I could just paint an oem bezel which was something i was originally contemplating before it was damaged.

This thread is asking for opinions as much as anything!

I would have opted for a double din deck a while ago but i purchased all the additional wiring to hook this deck up in my truck and my trans am. When I swap the car on the road I can simply uplug the deck and move it, no splicing or any of that nonsense. It was a pain but I saved a few hundred buying wires instead of a new deck and now the swap takes about 5 minutes

The thing I like about your truck is the white, do you have any interior pics ? I think a white/black combo would be awesome depending on how your interior is colored. I believe you can pick up a bezel for about $93-$94 on Ebay. Let us know what you decide on and would love to see the finished result.

My truck is a sport so it has a fake carbon fiber-like pattern on stereo surround part of the dash bezel and the small flat panels on the doors. I was thinking paint them white??
