Here's a common problem for any Dodge Boys with a newly applied Bumble Bee stripe on a '69 R/T or Super Bee. The rear quarter fender reflector bezels need to be painted the same color as the vinyl tape stripe. What is the best and easiest way to paint these black for a home winter job?

Thanks for that info. Mine is the same way, but I was informed that it's not correct, and upon examining an original 1969 Coronet sales brochure, it appears that the bezels are stripe color. Now I'm all confused. lol

I contacted a buddy know mopars very well, He said ALWAYS, marker light housings were painted to match the stripe. this goe's for all darts, super bee's Daytona's and R/T;s both Coronet and Charger's. I was wrong to post before I was 100% sure!! sorry for the confusion.
