Thread: Black window trims

    Default Black window trims

    Has anyone had success in painting or wrapping there window trims to the glossy black?
    Iím looking at getting rid my ugly alloy trim for a complete black set but they are over $1000 for the whole lot
    Can get some from wreckers but chances are they are already scratched up and faded

    So my other option is repaint them or wrapping them
    Anyone got results doing this?

    it's a pity you're not in Sydney, The guy who wrapped my S4 did a black trim wrap on his A5, it looked great. Wrap style is the name of the company.

    I wasn't that impressed with my vinyl trim wrapping as it lasted less than a year before the vinyl started coming apart at the edges. That's the only experience I've had getting trim wrapped so results may vary depending on the company and/or installer.

    I also looked at getting replacement trim from the wreckers, but from my understanding you can't pull the trim off without causing irreparable damage to it.

    So now I've decided to try a product called Autodip/Superwrap which is a peelable sprayable vinyl wrap and comes in gloss black:

    I bought the cans but haven't had time to try it out yet. It's a cheaper alternative and if I don't like it I can easily peel it off and get back to stock.

    How about getting them ceramic coated or powder coated much better than just painting them.

    Donít think you can powder coat them being that you have to bake the paint and itís made of plastic
