Since paint is in my future, I gotta address that nasty gold colored trim around the windows and on the roof. Is the correct colour supposed to be black? Did anyone paint theirs? What kind of paint and prep work? Milosz, you used some sort of 3M stuff to fix yours... came out well. Enlighten us.

OK, its a tape made by 3M, dont know the part number right now, but i will tomorrow. its kinda expensive tho, about 40 bux, but you get 500 feet of it, so its worth every pretty penny. the tape is supposed to last a couple of years they say, and when put on right, looks very stock indeed. theres a clear cover on top of the tape when you apply it and you must take that off in one smooth stroke becuase if you stop taking the clear tape off, itll leave a line where you stopped. you need to take that clear protection off becuase underneath is the dull black that you want. you guys saw how it looked. you also need to be patient and somewhat plan it ahaed, this isnt like normal tape, once you lay it down, you wont be able to pull it back up if you mess up, also, check any peices you are doing for knicks or w.e they stick out like a sore thumb once covered.
