It doesn't seem feasible for Ford to make a special Radio Bezel for Mazda only ! Different paint I understand, Silver ike the FX4, Lvl II, I understand but not a one-off piece.

I still need to take a forty mile drive to check out a new hydro-Dipping Shop and pricing !

 

Not CF at all.  It's just like hydro dipping.  you can see the pattern.  It's nicer than the black bezels that we have.  But there is no depth when looking at it.  Just looks like a silk screen print in a way.  I used 3m 1080 years ago to wrap my bezel.  Gives it a dimensional look.

I think I wrapped that bezel 4-5 years ago. Still looks exactly how it did. I ended up rapping the door pulls, a-pillars as well just recently. Looks good. I'm half tempted to take the wrap off the a-pillars and just paint them black. I did the rest of the interior behind the seats black and my headliner is black so it looks so much nicer.

I keep looking at eBay for the door pulls so if they EVER come up I'll let you know so you can buy them to match your bezel! Might be a couple years though but if you ever sold them as a set (door pulls and bezel) I'm sure you'd make a pretty penny on it! I will have to look to see if I had the part numbers from them... I know I saved them somewhere just in case but have to go back through emails/auctions.
