Blacking out

I have a 2001 325 CI orient blue and want to black out the chrome window trim, change out the "wood" interior trim, and my front grill. This proposes two questions, how do I black out my window trim? Also, where do I buy the black interior trim. BTW the interior is the tan leather. Peace out -Mat

Couldnt you just take the wood trim out, sand it , primer it, sand the primer, paint it, then wet sand it and then clear coat it?
