Ok, ive tried several finder blacks, olive oil, tire black and even the heat gun method. Ive got an 04 and want to do something with those ashy looking finders. Living in Fl with the heat and salt mist and acid rain dont help. Im thinking of removing them and painting them. Im thinking flat black..... suggestions on paint or would you just buy some new ones? If i paint them how well does it last and will it turn the same ole chalky look? I know they are plastic......... hate to sand them since they are textured so whats the process? Mineral spirits.... and just do it to it?
