    Just copy and paste it here. There's a list of links on the pohotobucket page once you click on a picture. The links will either all be displayed on right, or you'll have to click on the small icon that looks like a chain link.

    Re: Door Panel Trim

    Here is the driver's door panel:


    I'm thinking about sanding and painting these panels. If I do, I'll be sure to upload the after pictures.

    Re: Door Panel Trim

    Here are the freshly painted power windows trim panels

    I found the paint at Wal-Mart, Rusteolum Camo color. I took the trim piece into the store to get as close to the color as possible. I tried AutoZone first but didn't find a color close to the factory color. Tell me what you think!

    If you want to give it another go , try SEM vinyl/plastic/leather dye. "Shale" might be a perfect match. You'll have to go to a body shop supply shop, or order online.

    Re: Door Panel Trim

    Thanks, MoistCabbage! The color seemed to be dead on with the paint cap color but after taking those photos I can see a difference. It definitely looks 10x better they were. I even thought about matching the top of the dash color which seems to be a taupe or "medium" brown. I would have to sand and paint the trim panels that hold the door release level. What do you think?

    What you change the color of is totally personal choice, but I would definitely do it with a product specifically designed for it (such as SEM). You don't want stuff to start peeling, then you'll be worse off l than you started.
