My father just bought an E28 for a daily driver. Just something to get back and forth to work.
Its in pretty good shape but it could use a little help. How can you get the black trim black again and not looking two shades of dark gray.

Also are those ebay auctios for 6 CDs for 30 bucks worth it for the manuals? I would rather spend 30 instead of 100 for my car and another 50 for his.

thanks

There are trim pieces that are on the corners of the bumpers that look like they were painted from the factory. But looks as if over the years the paint has come off.

Would he just repaint them or do you have to take the old paint off?

Does that make more sense? Sometimes I dont make much sense.

makes sense now.

if your painting them black again i say strip off the old paint and maybe get some of that krylon fusion is its just a winter beater type car.

if you want it to look good id say strip it and primer then paint with almost anything.

but im not a paint dude, so id wait for someone else to respond
