Window Trim (Help)

The chrome window trim on the front and back of my car has vanished over the years, I was wondering if I need to buy new trim and stick it on, or do I simply just repaint....chrome silver somehow.

If your car is clean I would get new ones.

I"m in the same boat as you are...

my car is clean, I'm having difficulty sourcing new ones...trying to avoid the stealership, but I suspect it'd be the only way

they're going to cost a lot at the dealership.... i would recommend doing the shadowline diy, it looks much better. but if you want to stay with the chrome look not sure if they still sell the chrome ones at the stealership

My passenger side one vanished one day while driving, I was able to pick up used set off a fellow max member for fairly cheap. Ask around.
