At some point I would like to replace the door garnish mouldings / windshield rails that have aged from a black to a purple-black color.

I've done an Advanced Search as well as using the EPC and The Russian Parts Site.

I think the following two p/n's are correct for the black door trim >69 Paneling and Lining>020 Paneling Door Edge Guard Sections>#190 Left and Right RAIL = p/n 1296900139 and 1296900239, MSRP $192.00 each at Parts.com

And two of the black windshield trim.

>72 Front Doors>015 Front Doors>#115 Left and Right GARNISH MOULDING
p/n 1296900180 and 1296900280, MSRP $70.00 each at Parts.com

Silver Arrow Panoramic Roof trim p/n's.

Well I didn't receive the p/n's that I was looking for but one of the forum members was kind enough to PM me the p/n's for those of you that would like to add the SS door and windshield trim pieces for a Silver Arrow Panoramic Top.

door trim:
LH 1296900580
RH 1296900680

windshield trim:
LH 1296900539
RH 1296900639

With the above information I'll go back into the EPC and confirm the p/n's that I need.

I found a product that doesn't require that I R&R the trim in order to bring it back to black.

It's called Plasti Dip. Have any of you guys tried this product?

Probably look like you did it with a broom by the time it was done ! How about checking with a chrome or anodizing shop ? It's only metal. I'm sure it can be stripped/plated or anodized. Interesting that some have gone purple ! Mine have a bronze/black look that I actually like ! Perhaps effected by UV and the place the car lives/lived ?

IDK Lynn, I think that orange peel, matte look (or broom finish as tdoriot says :D) would bother me more than your purply color. They do have a gloss spray though. Worst case you can just peel it off.

It is a cool system, looks fun to try on something.

So the door, window and trunk trim were black from factory? I also thought it was a bronzed black look as mine are. It looks so uniform I thought it was always that way.

Lynn,

Noticed a new explorer with this yesterday, went to talk to the guy to get info for you. He did the grille about 6 months ago and just did his wheels a couple days before. He really liked the way it applied and the product in general. They were definitely a more matte finish with a somewhat orange peel appearance. But, it was the design and appearance was nice.

The grill didn't have any chips or peels with mountain driving and salt and gravel on the snowy roads. The wheels looked great. He said it was a lot of fun to do and the areas he wanted to peel went very easily. There was one wheel at the center hub that had a slight bubble where it didn't attach and he said he was going to peel and respray that hub later that day.

He said it was so simple to fix errors in the learning process and it was easy to get it correct.

Thanks for the follow up.
I realize it's not the end all answer but what I do like is that if you don't like the end results you just remove it. Kinda like Dr.ColorChip touch up paint.
