    Default my piano black door pillar trims

    as per other thread here a few pics got a spare set and had them painted piano gloss blk and laquered. then 2000wd and loads of polishing to get mirror smooth finish.
    dead easy to do just pull the weather trim back undo the 3 t20 screws and pull thje old ones off and replace... took about 30 mins to do the job. will take some more pics when sunny .

    Let's face it... anyone has to admit that is rather nice.

    End result certainly worth the effort.

    I've just bought a sunstrip to cut up to do this... Thought they where a pain to remove so skipped the idea of painting...

    Looks to have been a great finish on them, but IMO the gloss black finish doesn't really suit the car its on - there isn't any other gloss black for it to match with - just MHO though, but it looks a great paint job
