  • Plastic Semi-Texture Material for Bezel

    I am having the hardest time figuring out what the black textured plastic is called that comes in all the stereo install kits which matches nicely with the rest of the black on my dash.

    I am planning on machine a new front cover for my LCD. I have one of the Super e-bay 7" LCD's and it actually fits almost perfect in my double din opening, but I don't like the looks of the silver cover with all the buttons.

    I can draw up a new front cover to the exact size I want, and machine it on my cnc mill. I know exactly what I want to do and how it will all mount, but I just can't find the material to machine the new front cover.

    I have purchased both Delrin and ABS, but they are very shiny. I want the matt black with a very fine textured finish.

    Thanks for any info.

    You would be better off posting this in the "fabrication" forum I think. I think many people attain the flat/matt black finish by using paint overtop ABS plastic or Bondo.

      Thanks, did not see the fabrication forum. Will repost there.
