How do I go about changing the trim around the windows on my car? I guess its called weatherstripping or something. where can i go to get this done and whats the usual cost?
Its really faded and greyish and makes the car look old. Id rather get some nice black or silver trim.
any ideas. Thanks guys, uve all been really helpful in the past.
I'm working on getting some pics on here.

your paint on the trim has faded and will soon start to peel so if you want you could get them powder coated...that will make them look awsome and if its done right it will last forever...i wouldnt just up and buy stock pieces cause it will just happen again

aren't they rubber? wouldn't it melt and not work to get it powder coated?


buy stock replacements. keep them treated.

they'll look good for a long long time.

yes true but rubber weather stripping doesnt fade to grey unless you never wash your car or something...i believe he is talkin about the metal trim that runs around the front windshiled and rear windshield that always fades and peels...my 4th gen did it and once i get the time plus a garauge to pull it into i will pull mine off to get powdercoated....sexcaliber if i am wrong in the trim let me know dawg

^chill out dude

we dont even know which trim he's talking about.. metal? or rubber?

there's a difference...


and the trim usually fades when it's hit with a lot of sunlight too..

wow. good response, driving you guys crazy. I mean the trim around the doors and tiny back windows is turning grey. And the metal portion in back around the rear window is turning rusty and bad.

So, what can i do, now that we know Im talking bout the whole damn thing
:)

Thanks guys.

mine was just like the too..
i took a utility knife and cut all the peeling material off, sanded the rust off, taped it up really really well (overspray=bad) and sprayed it with ten to 15 light coats of black krylon rust tough.


there you have it.


the plastic on this seal looked really bad, so i did this one too (a little harder, but very do-able)


so... for five bucks and a little patience, it's not bad :emthup:
