EA81 Door trim question...

Recommended Posts

It appears there is a rubber strip all along the side of the wagon. It looks like rubber sandwiched between chrome. The rubber portion on mine appears faded, or maybe it was coated with something at some time? What was it like originally?? Thanks,

I assume you're talking about the door guard "ding strip". Often they are coated with a clear film of plastic to prevent oxidation.

I have used the Krylon Fusion plastic paint very succesfully on things such as that - use it to make the mudflaps on my Brat look new. The Red is a perfect match for the 4WD lettering. Back is nice on bumpers and trim and such.

 

The clear plastic over the chrome.... that stuff just flakes off and I don't think there is any fixing it really. Looks terrible, and I'm probably just going to remove the strip completely on mine and bondo the holes before it goes for paint.
