    didn't even consider that - I'll give it a shot this weekend and hope it's a close match.

    it'll be close, it wouldn't be a bad idea to go over them all.

    Finally got around to doing this. While not perfect, the plastidip worked sufficiently enough. Only thing I should've done was sand down the rough edges from where it was peeling b/c you can still see the outline of where it peeled off. Good thing is, easy enough to redo whenever I feel like it. THanks for the idea thebigjimsho!

    Re: How To Replace...

    Although the original question wasn't answered, the top metal trim piece on my rear passenger door needs to be replaced. (The one just above the piece Faber is referring to). I think the part # is 25778959, listed as weather-stripping unless it's 25778962 which is listed as a stationary vent ($1000?). It has small dents in it, presumably from someone tapping a snow scraper on it that plasti-dip wouldn't resolve. Anyone know how to remove for replacement, which likely involves removing the piece Faber is referring to?
