Step 3: Paint a coat, wait, paint a coat, so on and so forth til its done. I only waited about 10 mins each coat and you can spray quite a bit on there with out any running.
Step 4: The worst part, remove the tape without taking the rubber with it. May try breaking the rubber between the tape and trim so it wont come off. I didnt and had to respray a few spots when it came off the trim.
Step 5: Enjoy and know it wont last forever, i still kinda liked the chrome on black look so i may go back one day if i get chrome rims.
it would have been sooooo much easier to just remove the trim...

I put the e46 back together today. it now has carpet, seats, trim, and headliner all back in.
