Did a search and can't come up with anything. I know that the chrome portions on this bezel are a tough and expensive restoration, so many of them appear yellowed from age (like mine). I remember reading that some have resorted to painting these rings. Can anyone share their experiences in trying to improve the looks of their bezel?

I painted mine my self like RyanG85. I used the reflective paint from eastwood because it was the shiniest paint that I knew of. I think it turned out pretty good, someone would have to be looking really close to notice that.

If you do not want to spend lots of $$$$ Go to a craft store (Michaels Crafts) and purchase a silver leafing marker. It is just like a magic marker with a wide felt tip and it is silver. The tip slides easily along the raised edges giving a crisp line.
I have used this in the past to do touch ups, as well as a complete gauge trim ring. Slightly less shine, but unless you look very close, you cant tell it is not chrome and it only cost $10
