if you cleaned them and primed them properly should be able to. but you'd prolly find someone willing to buy the chrome ones off you...

I'm sure you'd have someone willing to swap your molds with Fairmont ones.

People kill for these chrome things. :shock:

Fairmont ones are almost same as Ghia trims. Where the chome strips are, the Fairmont ones are flat plastic and that area is left unpainted (so is plastic grey colour) and the rest of the mold is body coloured.

Pin stripes can be lifted off like a sticker, then cut and polish to clean the area up.

Or panel beaters have a special magic little roller that can pin stripe and residue without any scratching.
