Black window trim repair

Post by Artiz1 » Tue Feb 09, 2016 8:53 pm

Anyone found a decent repair solution to the black aluminium window trim seperating the front and rear side windows and the small rear door window?
All I can think off right now is a quality black matt car wrapp film...

I have used foil to make it black again. Maybe plasti dip can be used? I have no experience with it.

I was thinking of some black car wrapping film. But plastibdip might actually be worth a try here :)

I think wrapping foil will be better, PlastiDip is nice and easy, but not as resilient from my experience.
