    Ok, So i have painted other bezels of past trucks with Krylon Fusion flat paints and sprayed a clear of them and good results.

    I painted the left side bezel, instrument cluster bezel, and the bezel that goes around the radio and A/C controls, however, I used the Fusion Black Gloss and It has fustrated the hell out of me.

    The left bezel I put too many coats on and the paint on top is dry and the underneath seemed dry to until I put it in the truck....one day of 90 degree temps and the paint underneath is like jello.. I can push on it with my finger and indents then flattens out again....its been in the truck for 2 days plus 7 day dry time off the truck!

    The other 2 bezels dont do that but if I tap it with my nail it leaves an impression in the paint! WTF! Both of thos had 7 dry time before I installed them also!!

    I was going to buy the bezels new and start fresh, however for all three its $290.00! Sooo...I will be sanding them down again!

    My question is has anyone seen this with the gloss and should I go back to the flat with a clear.

    Or does anyone know of any company that sells custom bezels - not the overlay stuff but the actual bezel?

    Sounds like you applied the paint way to heavy. You only need a few thin layers of paint to give you color then your clear. Make sure you use the clear. It will be a whole lot easier to clean.
