ebay

it goes for around 30$ something

Kind of expensive... maybe someone here can fab one? I'd be willing to look for one in fiberglass to paint.

Bezel

Thanks for the response. I can't find any on Ebay or anywhere for that matter. I'd be happy for a fiberglass one as well.. would love to have it all painted white and go around the bezel on the clock as well. Let me know if you have any luck.

Thanks again!!!!

Painted Bezel

That looks great. How did you do the red ring? Hard to tell in pic. Is it vinyl pin-stripe or was that your base coat then taped off and sprayed the silver?

Looks great

Good job on the bezel. Thought about it myself as well. I painted the outer ring yesterday silver.. since my xB is PW I might do what you did as well. Looks good!

Here is a picture of the chrome bezel .... though this is available in Jpan, I actually bought it from eBay, from the chap that is mentioned in this thread... I also bought the a/c knobs from him....

Haha, neither. The base is metallic black krylon, the front bezel is silver testors and the red strip is made from zip ties, crazy-glued together . Really.
I also have a transformer badge on the speedo face. It all looks very OEM, people are always asking me if all xB's come like that :)
Here's a few other pix.

Actually i did another mod to it more recently, painted the matte black plastic ring that gpoes around the inside of the speedo (behind the clear cover) a gloss red... looks like it is the same piece as the red strip on the outside.

My next thing is to have red LEDs shine on the badge and needles from above... I was going to have red glowing LED eyes also for the badge but there isn't really enough room to do that behind the gauge face.

Cool

Wow. That is really cool. Great creativity on your part. Hope you don't mind if I might steal your idea... guess it's a good thing I'm in North Carolina!!:)

You can buy color matched paint for 25 bucks a can at scratchpaint.com they have all the stock Scion colors. I got the PW paint and it's great! The code is 068. Nice people to deal with too.
