    I'm looking to paint the trim on my LR3. What's everyone's thoughts on that?

    Probably a bad idea. It's your ride, but....you asked

    There are several types of "trim" on these so what exactly are you talking about?

    Bumpers, wheel fenders, the trim pieces on the lower portion of the doors. Just want to give them that new look again without buying new pieces and rubbing that solution that makes them look good for a couple of weeks then turns back to the old faded look again.

    i used the new black stuff from atlantic british i think, 2 coats, and it looks fine for a few yrs.
    however, a pro body shop could paint them to match and would be very sweet. i would not DIY that one as it could actually look worse.

    There's a guy with an LR4 here in the Portland area who rhinolined all the plastic trim and the front bull bar. Looks pretty decent to me. I have pretty well just decided to accept the faded look...

    Sounds like an interesting idea. Do you know what the vehicle color is? What would look good with Java Black?

    Silver - I feel like black on black could work. Let me know if you go this route? Would love to know approximate cost.
