Hey everybody - I've been searching for info on removing/repainting the metal trim that goes around the windshield and rear windows of my '87 Cougar, but haven't found anything. Mine are still in great shape, but the black paint is just starting to come off/fade, so it just needs sprayed. I asked a small town body guy about it once, and he said he wouldn't touch it - he would rather have a glass guy do it to be sure that the trim didn't get bent up in removal. I was thinking about removing the trim myself and just spray-painting it, but this encounter has me worried that I'll bend it all up in the process.
Has anyone removed/replaced this metal trim? Were you able to keep from bending/kinking it in the process? Did you purchase any special tools that helped? Or would I just be better off leaving this job to the professionals?
