Default Exterior B Pillar - Treat it Like Paint...?

Hey guys, sorry if it's been answered before or is an obvious question. Should I treat the exterior B pillars as a painted surface or treat them with 303 or something else? Until very recently I've never tried to actually detail my car and wasn't sure what to do with the pillars

Yes treat it like a trim piece, however I got away from the typical dressings and found a better more semi permenant solution. Best of all its dry to the touch some unlike most dressings it wont sling off or wash off in the rain or attrach dust like silicone based stuff.

So I gave a shot to Klasse AIO....gets that gray oxidation off and well return it to a nice black finish. I use it almost everything. Trim,windows,grill.....basically anything besides the paint and wheels.

If used with an white polishing pas it even has some good correction abilty.

Buy a small bottle and try it, takes some work but I think you will like the results.

Thanks for the responses guys, I don't expect my trim to look quite like new but I'm trying to make the best of what I've got
