Default Paint coming off black exterior door molding/*....

Has anyone tried to resurface the black 'rubberized' exterior molding that runs along the top of both front and rear doors??,........every Bonneville that I've noticed parked somewhere has the same condition as I'm describing,....it'* pretty darned Nasty looking when parts of the moldings are normal-looking and the other parts are dull and 'rough-textured' in appearance.I'm wondering if generic auto black bumper-trim spray paint would work...and not flake off,...or if there is a better product out there to do the job???Thanks for any info or feedback.......

I have exactly the same problem. My paint is in generally good condition (when clean) but the moldings on the doors just under the windows are worn and nasty. I wouldn't recommend moisterizers like Armour-All or Back to Black as they will run onto the paint when it rains and will wear off fairly quickly. Anyone who has any ideas please chime in.

Yes,...that'* what I'm talking about.You did a FINE job on peeling the molding and painting them[thanks for the detailed pics,as well],however,I guess I'm looking to re-coat the original rubberized-texture moldings with something.Maybe the once over with a detail sander and some fine-grit paper and then a coat or two of trim-black paint.As they look now,it'* about the first thing you notice when you walk up to or past the car,....and they look terrible

It really is an eye sore on the car, like I said 6 mths later they still look new now.If you price new ones they are like 150 a piece or something outrageous.I thought I cant go wrong do it myself for a few bucks, if turned out bad I can redo them or replace.
