92, 4 questions-Paint and cooling Fan

Just got my 92S repainted before I hand it down to my daughter.Was VERY faded looking, better now.

The guy at the body shop was going to do the rain gutters(roof trim pieces) but they were still in the back seat when I went to pick it up-untouched.
I may try to take it back to him and ask WTF?
Might be easier to just sand and shoot a coat or two myself as he's located pretty far away.
1.So what color are these supposed to be? Car is Milano Red. The pieces I have are really beat and I can't determine if they were originally black or red.
2. Rear bumper insert-groove on back bumper-was that originally black in there?
Mine's now red. Think the body shop just didn't take the time to mask it off.Think I should try it myself(likely with brush)? or just leave it
(aside)-looks like it's a good thing I took my red mudflaps off, cuz I'm guessing from what I see he'd just painted around then. Will need to put another coat or two back them-held up well since I did them 8 years ago. Thinking of doing the bottom rocker panel as well.
3. Wiper blade arms. What kind of paint will stick on these. Sanded(not totally off)prepped and sprayed them flat black, back a few years ago. That lasted maybe six months and back to silver showing through.

4. Cooling fans. Mine have been on vacation for a while-neither work.
Checked the fuses-good. Assumed cooling fan relay was shot-replaced it.(there's 30 bucks well spent-NOT) Still no go. Is there a sensor for these things? Hard to believe both would fail at the same time.
Need some trouble shooting guidance on them.

Thanks for input and thoughts

Yes could be your coolant temp sensor although if it were completely out I think it would throw a code if i'm not mistaken. That sensor is used for more than just fans.

I would also like to know what paint to use on the wiper arms as I am now sporting the 2 tone look black/shiny lol

I did my wipers on my old car and I simply sanded them and spray painted them. The key is to use rustoleum exterior primer and exterior paint.

I am having the same issue with my cooling fans, they aren't going causing my prelude to overheat. I checked the fuse and the relay and they are okay, so either the fans are bad or there is some other issue.

If anyone knows please post!!
