Whatever you do, DO NOT PAUNT THE CURRENT MOKDING!!!! The paint will indeed peel. Do what I did, I have a 98, go to the dealer and just biy all new moldings all the way around, they can get it unpainted/untreated then have that painted to match. Unfortunitly (sp) they do not sell "Showdowline" trim for out year
ghead . You will have to modify the molding a little or at least I did, I can't tell you if it was becase they changed the way it was made or the unpainted kind was from a different year or if they just started to make it different??? But it is no big deal really it only affected the mount points on the bumpers, the side piece's were a perfect match. Good Luck.
