what paint has worked the best and matches best?

I've seen people using Rustoleum White for Plastic looking pretty good as well as Krylon White---but not sure which of thes people are happy with.

How are the white bezels holding up after the trail?

black I imagine would be hard to see anyways but white might get nasty fast.


thanks!

I painted mine 6 months and 6,000 miles ago - it looks like the day I did it. I actually think the Krylon paint is as durable as the Toyota paint.

I used the Rustoleum white, I have some chips in the paint from being stuck behind a semi, but I can always repaint it every so often.

Saw this FJ sitting on a dealers lot in NJ. I took the liberty of photoshopping the bezel onto the FJ to see how the Brick would look with a white bezel and the stock bumper. I think it looks good myself!

I used the Rust-Oleum White Plastic Paint. It is the only white they have. My process was sanding the bezel with 400 grit soft rag and following with a coat of adhesion promotor. Then I painted with 4 coats. Holding up very well.

Oops... I didn't used Krylon. I used plain old Rustoleum Gloss White. When I first painted it, I noticed that it was brighter than the roof... now, I don't notice. Not sure if it faded or what... but it still looks good.
