    I have the same problem. I think the big black ring around it makes it look atrocious. Black and white is worse. If mine ever gets painted complete, I'd like them painted also. Unfortunately, the best thing gong for mine, is how stock it is, and the key to most of it's value. I'm thinking I may be devaluing my car by making it look better...

    I'm not a painter, but I'd always heard that there was some additive one needed to use when painting rubber to give the paint the flexibility it needs to stay on in such a situation.

    go to a paint shop and get some trim black blackout paint in a can. just prep all your surfaces that you want to paint back black, mask off and go for it! i did mines(blue w black trim) years ago and it came out fine! you don't really need to prime the surfaces just make sure they are clean and smooth or it will try to fisheye on you. this paint is pretty durable and last a long time when done right. it repells water great too! no need for a clearcoat.

    havent ever seen a fox body with the trim missing. IMO it would look funny and ugly!

    and the trim on the front and rear bumpers, is molded into the bumpers.
