Default Flaking Paint around sunroof

Hi:

Recently the flat black paint around my factory sunroof is flaking. Seems GM painted chrome, and I wonder if there is a inexpensive fix for this.

Thanks,


-Jay

I'd pull the 4/6 sicrews holding the glass in (you can get them when the glass is closed. Then either repaint or pull one from a junkyard and replace.

You could use a plastic scraper to get the rest of the paint off and just have a chrome trim.
