Gave good ol Charlotte a wash the other day. Snapped some photographs with iPhone to show her off for the first time.

I am currently in the process of restoring the door and bumper moldings. I removed them from the car, sanded and cleaned the surface and used a BavAuto matte black spray paint that has been made to match the original matte black of the trim. While the door moldings have only a few coats of the paint, the bumper moldings received a clear coat (visible in the last two images). This was only to experiment how I wanted the finished product to look and have decided to respray all of the pieced again with paint and clear coat.

While I am at it, anybody know how restore the panels/molding around the door windows? Would be nice to have these parts match the improved molding to come.
