Fire me over your email...I'll send you a present lol.
What type of faces did you get...are they just slip on covers or do they have wires/separate power source to them?

I hate to say this late...but I hope you used black silicone and not the glue for your bezel rings. If you did the glue trick...2 things...watch the IPC for discoloration as sometimes the fumes will attach to the black inside portion and fog it over causing it to look white. This is very rare but on occasion has happened. In addition, the glue after 6-8 months becomes hard and brittle. This causes the bezel rings to fall off. There are numerous reports of this. The solution is they went to a "glue gel", while this helped...I still think silicone is a much better solution. It is easier to handle, clean up, and will never get hard.
