Painting exterior trim?

Has anyone thought of painting the window trim the color of their car?

I've been wondering about this too.

I think it'd break the good lookin black "pitcher's mound" shape on the side of our cars if you painted the black pillar inbetween the door and the quarterpanel window

^^Agreed. Unless you've got NHBP, then it will break up the look of the car by doing that. Would be original though. How about some self-adhesive, thin CF plate like from Raceplates instead?

I actually thought about painting mine when the fvckers that broke in scratched my piece that goes along the bottom of the window, and the piece you all are talking abuot with a screwdriver or something. I'v just been too lazy to do it for one, and I don't efel like doing the prep work. I might let them when I get the whole car repainted though.

Where do you come up with these crazy ideas? Just leave it. I don't think anyone will even notice. It won't look good because the rubber is curved.
