    some were apparently painted with the same paint used on the glovebox door, ashtra, and gauge panel. I've seen it called different names, most often "pewter".

    I read someplace, don't ask me where, that all white FJ40s came with black bezels, other color Cruisers had cygus white. I run black on my white Cruiser just because I like the look.

    to be honest, i like black the best on the round bezels, but for a 79, defintely white.
