Sega Astro/new astro monitor bezel rework

Post by Neo'nate »

Given the astro monitor bezel is a fiberglass panel with gloss top coat, a spray paint approach is never going to replicate its appearance. So what is the best approach to recolouring / re working this tricky part? I've done a deep dive into the topic through various re-work threads on various forums, but details are fairly light when it comes to this particular part. If I've missed anything however, please point me in the right direction.

Cheers!

The dark grey/black monitor surround?

If so, I sprayed mine with a rattle can and it came out just fine.

Figured I’ve seen so many different variants of grey/black bezels as long as you do a good job it’ll look fine.
Astro City is only a letter away from atrocity. Makes you think doesn’t it?

Same here - just make sure to use a decent clear coat on top

Here's what I used - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Spray-Max-2K-C ... d_rp_0_5_t
