Has anyone painted their bumper and door moldings from black to body colored? You all know how unlike the coupe, the sedan comes with black moldings. I have seen a couple of cars that had painted them to body color. I have a silver sedan and am thinking about painting them. I hear they use flexible paint but I wonder how long it will last. The last thing I want is to see paint coming off. Also with the distance sensors on the modlings, would it be okay?

I did it and can tell you if not done right it will flake off in a hard cleaning.. Looks great once done though.

See SolidJAke he used a vinyl wrap on his moldings and it looks better than paint. And costs a fraction of the price at a fraction of the DIY time.

hahaa...you just revived 6 years old thread..anyway, i 'd like to do it too...

When we start new threads everyone yell to do a SEARCH!
