Just like i showed in the pics, I pulled the bezels, scuffed the chrome all over with 400 grit sand paper, and sprayed them with a few coats Rust-Oleum Metallic grey the same shade as my rims.

I like using Rust-Oleum because it's pretty inexpensive. In my experience it does seem to take a little while longer to harden than other paints but it can be worth it because it is pretty tough. If warm out (above 70) i usually let the parts sit in the sun and allow the sun to bake the paint for 4-5 hours before reinstalling. If it's cold and the part is small enough i put it in a 200F oven (with the door open) for 20-30 min to harden the paint.

Worked for me but i was able to do it with the bottom clip instead of the inner one.

Pulled mine so i could color match them to the wheels.

Plastic card technique is the easiest way to remove the bezels. 👍👍👍

I know, but at least here there is for sure. I didn't have foglights from factory, so I bought them from my local Ford dealer, I paid $2,300 pesos (177USD) just for the bezels plus another $3,600 for the fog lights
The blue set in the video is from China and cost me 8$ Canadian/95 pesos.
