You can get a cheap digitizer at Amazon.com, and there are a few videos on YouTube that'll teach how to replace it.

I got mine from RepairsUniverse.com. It was 67$ with shipping. Order their double sided tape, too. When you get it, disassemble according to their YouTube video. To remove the glass, use a hair dryer to heat the glass, and nudge it out with the plastic tool they provide. If you go slow and don't rush it, the whole process will take about an hour the first time. Clean the frame well, and place the tape on it. You'll have to cut the piece provided, so don't worry if it doesn't line up exactly. Press the glass down on the tape and reassemble the phone. BOOM.
Also: if you want to do something REALLY cool, search for the white digitizer and battery cover. The all white G2X looks awesome, and you can get the whole kit for like 80 bucks USD.

I never needed to use a hair dryer. It's fairly weak adhesive that keeps the screen on to the glass.

Look up the YouTube video. I actual commented on there about my experience replacing it. Same user name but with an x at the end (buru898x).

Oh and you also don't need to "re-tape" the screen either. The screen is locked in securely with or without glue/tape.

This is the digitizer I bought, and I used a video on YouTube to do it. It was by repairs universe. It was really straightforward. You need a Phillips 00 screwdriver.

This auction had the housing as well so all I did was replace it completely. Simple.

Good Luck!

The bezel is plastic trust me I dented the hell out of mine. Its black plastic with a grey metallic coating. Let's see if I can get a good picture of it.

Try this one , you don't have to worry about adhesive and is easy to install.
Touch screen doesn't have a issue.

I can tell you mine works perfectly.

I even opened it once more recently to get a few specs of dust from the screen out.

The first time I opened it was a whiles back... on the YouTube video you can see the date of my post.
