    Rear window trim

    I got a 03 blazer 2 dr an my side windows in the rear the big ones, the rubber trim around them are dryed out an look like sh*t. Any one have ideas on making this look better instead of an eye sore. The window cost800$ worse case i guess i have to put glass coverage an blow the windows out

    you can sand them down and paint them. There used to be a few threads on how to do it here.

    If its really bad, you may want to start out with 80 grit, then do 180, then 320, then even finer until you get it nice and smooth. Then you want to hit it with a good adhesion promoter like either SEM XXX, or Bullydog. Follow the directions on the can for that. Then primer/paint it. Just make sure that you tape off the glass before you start sanding and if you hit the tape with the paper, re-tape it. If you get any scratches in the glass then you will have to replace them and like you said, they are very expensive to replace. I made the mistake of hitting both my side glasses with the DA. Now I have to replace them both.

    sometimes a good polishing compound will take out the sratches from glass....worked on most of my side panel windows

    and a good filler primer can fill in the smaller holes. I use filler primer and textured black rust-o-eum for my xtreme and they came out tits

    Yeah I tried the polishing compound on my windows and they were too deep. :(
