    Can you post a link to the ABS headliner on ebay? I'd like to check that out.

    Thank you,

    Eric

    For $175 I would expect better as well, good luck with Summit making it right.

    They said they would send me another, but could not guarantee one without same issue.

    Are this the ones that Dakota Digital sells? I would be calling them and complaining as well, not just Summit , they are getting a good price for them.

    Just contacted them, will see what they say as well. I didnt realize they were this bad before purchasing, like Linenoise said, there was a you tube video on it.

    I assume they are sourced from the same place that CI gets them - that's where I got mine. The entire thing is "chromed" and then just masked and spray painted. I lightly blasted, 2K epoxy primed, then 2K satin black painted. But I wanted it all blacked out - no chrome.

    I was considering doing same if they cannot send a bezel that's better looking( I dont expect them to, just thought Id complain. Maybe if they get enough complaints they will fix it. ). I have the Flat Black paint, so might as well use it.

    I contacted Dakota Digital regarding the Bezel, they said they just got a batch of new bezels from OER, sent me some pictures, and it appears that the new ones are better quality than the one I have. Although the guy I spoke to was very clear to point out that none are perfect. They took care of replacing it and shipping, so I guess as long as the new one is better than the one I sent back Im ok with it.


    I also ordered a dash from NPD, and it was cracked.

    Placed the bezel in the area to see if it would cover the crack, it does, but I can only imagine that crack will grow.

    posted on facebook, and someone pointed out that the texture was also too smooth. Which I agree. I thought NPD dashes were the best, unless I just got a dud.
