The infamous "search" feature is not working. Someone was talking a while back about a great website to get matched paint in a pen/spray/can. What was the site?

Also, I am planning on painting the mouldings on my car...do I need to clear coat them also???

He is just talking about the rubber strip midway on the door (im pretty sure ).

the other stuff can be made black again with many prodcuts out there like blackagain.

Correct on both accounts...

To just make your black trim "blacker"...or shiny new...use Mother's Back to Black or Trim and Tire Shine (and I can't remember who makes it ghead )
