Window Trim

So I've got some seriously worn out rubber trim on the bottom of the windows on both doors of the lude and its driving me nuts. I've read what I could find and it looks like trying to pain it or just buy new ones and replace. I was wondering if anyone has an pictures of the paint repair or any other advice about going that route or should I spend the cash and go replacement?

Air-Craft remover is a lot easier for stripping paint. Just spray, wipe, and repeat if needed.

Not yet. Still have about a year of rubber left on the 60 series tires on it. I plan on a descent suspension setup once I get lower profile tires.

I didn't take mine off. It took me about 2 days to get all the old coating off. Once that was off I just lightly sanded the trim, masked the area and painted with Dupli-Ccolor satin black.

Mine was replaced before I bought it. It's my dad's that needs fixing. He doesn't want to mask anything. He wants to take it off and paint it and do a better job.

Use the Duplicolor fabric/Vinyl Dye. It works wonders on both plastic and rubber moldings. I used it on mine and u can get it in either flat or a gloss finish.

Use the flat the gloss looks to new and looks like it was painted the flat will blend in to the car a lot better.

This piece is metal with a black coating. Do not use fabric dye on a metal part. It will just roll off. If you used it on yours you did not remove the chipped and peeling coating.

It's not that hard actually. I've had the door tore down to do my speakers and it was right there. Just have to be careful not to break the plastic clips that hold it on.

Well before you do the job might suggest to go by the dealer and pick up some of those plastic tabs before you start the job, as those clips tend to be dry rotted or brittle and break easy. Plus the dealer may only have so many in stock so you could order them and when they are in you can have them on hand, makes it a little less fustrating.

Re: Window Trim

you might try using scotch brite to get the coating off maybe some windex to break it up a lil more. I havent tried this...just seemed logical to try. I just replied to a different thread about this same issue.mine is chipping like crazy and looks like S%$#. I'll give it a whirl and tell how it went...

Re: Window Trim

I wouldn't mask it, it continues to the bottom of the door[inside it obviously]. Take off the door trim and its held in by 4 screws, may be more or less I cant remember, that are hidden behind the rubber on the inside of the door. I rubbed mine down using different graded papers, for eaching coating being careful not to scratch into the metal. Then primed it as many times as need to hide any scratches already in the metal and then coated it until there were no imperfections, I used Honda Knight Hawk Pearlescent Black as thats the colour I was planning to spray the car in. My rubbers will need more work to bring them back to a closer black but that's expected as theyre 11 years old

Replacement, painting only buys you a couple months of looking better but not great. Previous owner of mine painted these to make the car look good when I test drove it but months later it looks like crap.

Does anyone have a link to removing this trim piece? Is it possible without removing the door panel? Thanks!

Re: Window Trim

Maybe this doesn't apply to the post, but to keep the rubber that sandwiches your windows in good shape, use silicon spray. My windows were shuddering and I sprayed that rubber and now they work fine. My friend had the same problem and did not use silicon, and now his window motor is dead. Too much friction.

Anyway just though I'd stick that in there.
