That I cannot answer, I'm sorry. But I can check with Peterg22000...he may know... Are you sure the black plastic stuff has clear coat on it? For some reason I thought that these strips were just plastic...not painted...just the color of the resin.

Once again, you're guessing is way off. I too worked with Tom on my car. It was not me that bought the host gift. It was bought three weeks before NEBF and brought there... so ha. Now, stop going will ya?

Sorry jdq....

Sorry I thought we were dealing with the rubber trim around the windows on the 92-95 Bonnevilles.

if so when i did mine (same problem that you are describing) I removed them santded them smooth and put a light coat of primer on sanded that smooth the base/cleared them, since you wouldnt be able to do that your self you could just sand them smooth, get some gloos black paint from canadian tire and paint then and they would look pretty damn good.

just not as good as mine J/K

Thats exactly it Haro , i have two door trims that are peeling and other 2 are like yours.I keep the car washed and polished but this is a eyesore.My 1990 sse door trim looks almost new except for surface scratches.I cant justify paying $140 bucks for 1 of these.

Is the part plastic or hard rubber? I honestly cannot remember. You may want to try some Back to Black if it is hard rubber.
