I need to redo the trim on my rear side windows. I know some of you sanded them and repainted them. Can you tell me what you used please and any tips that will make it easier. Thanks

I just did mine and they turned out pretty nice. I wet sanded with 100 grit to start, then progressed to 600 and 1000 grit. Between each sanding I cleaned with acetone. After sanding I painted with Plasti-Kote Flexible Spot Filler and Primer then wet sanded again with 1000 grit. I did this twice before painting with Plasti-Kote Trim Black. I applied the Trim Black 3 times after allowing each coat to dry. My mouldings were pretty dried out so I had to do alot of sanding. My advice is to take your time. Your windows really need to be out of the car. Sorry, but I don't have a close up photo.
