Painting trim..

Hey guys...
I searched this before with unsucessful results. Anyway, what method and paint do you recommend to paint the side window and door trim (the chrome around the windows) to flat black? I know some of you have done it. Please help me out. Thx!

well ive never done it,but the best thing to do would be to get that bumper and trim paint fron ctc.Its somewhat flexible,sticks really good and its only a semi gloss...you dont wanna make it all shiny so it stands out,then it'll look like ass...and dont forget to take your time and give the trim a light scuff with 400 grit..
