Has anyone painted the exterior trim on their RAV? I noticed this photo and I have thought of painting the trim on a black paint/silver trim RAV4 I may purchase.

those two cars are different years.. one 96 one 98+
you can tell because only 96 have side markers :eek:
that means the 96 is not painted.. just unpainted :)

The 'After' Picture is un-painted with transfers in the grooves (Toyota OEM)

However, I do know from when I was looking for a new RAV - you can paint the plastic, but, they have to be painted with a special undercoat or the paint eventually peels

In your case (Silver) the bumpers are factory painted with silver paint and you could just paint them black
