Is there a major difference in the quality of the Trim Parts bezels compared to the cheaper bezels out there? I need a pair this week sometime and cant seem to find a true answer.

Buy the higher priced ones. They are alot better than the cheap ones.
That would be the Trim Parts bezels.Have you had first hand experience with both of them.How bad were the cheaper ones?

I have both of them.On the cheaper ones I've pulled the screws through the holes when installing them. Junk at best. They will all dent very easily.

hi jrocket ,i went thru the bezel nightmare too. both of them don't fit. the trimpart one is definitey better but it just doesn't line up with an original fender.if you site it down on edge you will see a curve in it.i also bought there tail lights and they give you a gasket as hard as a tire thread.i had to use my old soft gaskets to make it work.while i'm at it,the repo grille and the metal trim below it doesn't line up right either.had to redrill some holes,grind off alittle on each end and rebend it to match the original parts.nothing like buying parts that the venders swear will fit. the first photo shows an original bezel.notice no gaps anywhere. the second photo shows an trimpart bezel.notice the curve in it.like a rocking horse.i sent them back and ended up buying nos ones for $$$$.

I went with the cheaper and thinner bezels on my car, for the simple fact that I could easier "tweak" them to fit. When I put them on I had the same problem as NOVAFIED, didn't fit very well. But after a little tweaking, they fit good. The key word here is tweak, and not bend. And dont use your cordless drill to install the mountingt screws.:D
