Rubber coated side moldings

Postby Yves » Sun Jul 09, 2017 3:48 pm

I want to repaint my 1988 Bill Blass. How to restore the rubber coated side moldings (3 pieces on each side)? The sun bleached them out and there kind of bubbles. Is there a way to replace the rubber coating or does anyone know a company which remanufactures them?

If you could get all of the rubber off, you could probably wrap them in vinyl. There's quite a few colors available. It wouldn't be correct, but I think it would look good.

Oxidized rubber trim drives me nuts. There are some who say plasti dip, but that doesn't hold up on rubber. it peels off nice from paint & plastic, I guess thats why. You can get bedliner that doesn't have as much suspended particles, or Kent Automotive Euro Black. I'll be trying the last one, when I bring my 'new to me' LSC out for spring. Other things are planned for now.https://www.kent-automotive.com/Kent/Sa ... KT13423.ka

I haven't actually used it myself, but have seen it used. Plastic mirrors(which we don't worry about), and the black around bumpers & fender flares. It smartens it right up. I can't say how well it will work on the moulding's of our cars specifically. I will update with pictures in the spring, but that's not much help now. I'd be real interested to hear from anyone else in the club who has.

There are paintable vinyl type products that might work well.

ALSA is a brand I get emails from a lot, I've bought some candy concentrate and clear from them. They tout their many coverage products for almost any surface, including a dash for instance. The stuff they sell for spraying of brushing on, they say self levels and people like it. It's high dollar, everything they sell, but they run sales constantly, on various products. Most of what I have from them was 50% or more off from their normal prices. The emails advertise them, for sales that last from one day to three, to a week at most. I have some vinyl paint from them which was about $80 for a gallon, a grey metallic I meant to put on some wheels. It was about $200 or so normally. FYI, their shipping is not cheap, they use hazardous materials labeling etc, proper formal methods I'd say.
