Wondering there is anybody that professionally refurbishes the plastic bezels around the headlights. In regards to re- painting them. If that's even possible. Want them to look as original as possible.
Can anyone recommend anyone in So Cal or have a DIY thread regarding this?
Thanks
I will post better picture.

easiest way would be to sand the surface with 400 grit and a maroon scotch brite pad. wash with soap and water. the area where the silver goes you would spray and let the overspray go where ever it may. you would then lay a piece of fine line tape over the area you want to stay silver. you would then spray the entire piece your black colour, give it an hour or so to flash off and peel your fine line tape off carefully. when you pull the tape you need to pull it back on a 45 degree angle, pulling back on itself so it doesnt grab and lift your paint. dont cheap out on the tape (a good blue 3m tape is best). once the tape is off you can clear the entire piece. you have then cleared over both of your colours and it is done. i would recommend screwing the parts down to a piece of wood and covering the wood with a piece of masking paper. done. i have a fair bit of both the colours that i matched up with pics when i did mine. i used a metallic graphite silver and a light metalic black/dark silver.
