    it is a machined aluminum faceplate on top of a white plastic bezel..........the bezel holds the LEDs to illuminate the mount

    i put the cage in the mount and painted it black to prevent stray light from the LED to show where it was not wanted

    Looks great. I have one in my Grand Prix. I like the LED version. If that was available at the time I would have bought one of those instead of the lamp version.
