Default Window trim and door handle restoration help?

This has been reviewed a few times and I'm wondering if anybody has any solutions.



And a new problem: my door handles.

I can post pics later of how i vinyled the upper window framing. but honestly just replace the rain channels and the exterior window felt is what it is called. The window felts are about $50 each.

As for the door handles. Remove'm and repaint'em

I pulled the side pieces off (by the windows) and repainted them with trim paint. You could probably tape off really well and paint them on the car. They're metal so just sand them, prime them, and respray.

That part in the second picture on my car is having the same problem. I'm thinking about Plasti-dipping it.

Anyone know how to remove them? Do they just pop off?

I got Mothers Back to black cleaner from Walmart for around 5 bucks seems to work pretty well.
