fix window trim?

I have a 99 base and Im sure Im not the only one on here that has faded/cracking window trim with metal showing underneath. anybody ever removed the rest and repainted it? do they make a type of paint for that purpose?

thanks

Re: fix window trim?

is it true that you can just pull the stripping off and repaint it that way instead of taking apart the door. .2nd question, if you decide to paint it. .does the paint come to a close match to the original look of the opposite door??

^Yea you can just strip the paint but you're not guaranteed to get all of it off and you have a possibility of scratching your windows and paint. &To your second question, if you plasti dip it, it'll look brand new. Almost all preludes I've seen with redone window trim has used plasti dip. If they messed up, they just peeled it and started over.

Re: fix window trim?

I used a dremel with sanding drum and removed the remaining rubberized material.

Haven't painted yet but plan on using ceramic motor paint with plast-dip covering to give it texture.

I read here, on a no wind day or indoors, stand about 2-3' away and spray where mist falls onto the trim. Dude's pics of the process showed it looks pretty friggin close to original using the fog as the last coat.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
