Default Painting and attaching trim?

I went to the junker recently and picked up some trim for my bonneville. The trim on my bonneville is black on the outside with a black shinier black piece in the middle, this trim is black with white on the inside. I am just wondering what kind of paint i can use to paint it black.

Another question
What kind of adhesive should i use to apply it to the car? I have gorilla glue but I am not sure if that will stand a minnesotan climate.

Here are some pictures of the car with the missing trim and the new trim

As for glueing it, we all recommend 3M Super Weatherstrip Adhesive. (The adhesive itself is yellow.) However, Eric glued his in the exact same place like a week ago, using Permatex Contact Cement, and it apparently worked fine. See his link and pics here:

As for painting it, auto stores sell flexible bumper paint, but if you want it to match, I think you're going to have to paint all of those strips on the car.

I used pin striping on mine... turned out really good!

I used to have chrome all the way around
