I'm repainting my 74's bezel white and was wondering if it's supposed to be a flat/satin/semi/or gloss paint? I don't have any others to refer to. Thanks.....and yes, I'll try to put it back on right side up.;)

Gloss. Most are faded to satin, but it came out glossy.

I dont know about you guys but i love the gloss white on the bezel with the gloss white hardtop fiberglass cap. I repainted both the fiberglass cap and front bezel with a gloss white. for some reason im thinking that it was a Chevy Automotive White. i think you can get it at a local parts store. I think the dupli-color gloss white is the same thing.

my question is that baked bezel doesn't look like cygnus... What color is it? or do we know?

I've seen bezels painted lots of colors except GOLD......any takers? It would have a nice gold trim package like all those newer cruisers and Lexus grocery getters!

black was never a bezel color

On my 76 Fj 40 it is white but the paint is fading and it is black under the white.

The accessoried brocure is a neat find. Any chance you could scan all of it and post it?
