98-02 Accord Carbon Fiber Dash bezels (Two)

I have two Carbon Fiber Dash bezels for sale. These were made by an EBAY seller who is no longer on EBAY. The seller did a lot of C/F items for various cars. However, the seller had a lot of complaints in regards to quality and pilot holes on their items.

The pictures might show it but each bezel is slightly different. The one without pilot holes has more of a flat edge. The one with pilot holes has more of a rounded edge.


I'm not a Carbon Fiber expert but the Carbon Fiber looks to be good quality and has been laid pretty well. The clear coat is good, I won't say excellent perhaps a slight cloudiness.... I'm comparing the clear coat to the AIT Racing Carbon Fiber rear window spoilers I have and the AIT clear coat is like a mirror finish and not cloudy.


In the pics, the one on the left does NOT have any pilot holes drilled so you will need to do that yourself. The one on the right DOES have pilot holes already drilled, so it's ready to go in.



This is important - full disclosure here:
The only way these are going to mount into the dash is with the two screws on the top edge of the bezel. There are "notches" or mounting points on the rear of these things, just like the OEM bezel, but they will fail when you install. Those notches or mounting points are made of carbon fiber and has no bracing/support, so those mounts just kinda crumble when you try to mount. I know, sounds bad, but those two screws on the top of the bezel will hold it just fine.

The one I had mounted in my car did have some gap. About 1/4 inch. The one that does NOT have pilot holes should have no gap.
Look at the pics below and decide for yourself.
