    Default chrome window strips ?? ideas

    hi everyone im not sure if its just my vectra or if others have had the same problem but my chrome window strips have stain marks all over them if anyone has had the same problem have you repaired them or covered them with something ? if so what because they let the car down im tempted to cover them black to match the black car so any ideas would be great thanks

    if it's like my chrome trims ,

    then the milky staining is inside the plastic chrome trim ,

    i think it's caused by rain water getting in .

    so polishing does not work .
