After I was cleaning rubber off of my car last night from a burn out, I though I'd take off the two rear rocker trims, and polish them on the bench. Turned out pretty nice. The body is very clean underneath.

Trim before:
Rear rocker trim. 1-7
Rear rocker trim. 2-5
Rear rocker trim. 3-5
Rear rocker trim. 4-4

Body before wash & wax:
Rear rocker trim. 5-3
Rear rocker trim. 6-2
Rear rocker trim. 7-1
Rear rocker trim. 8-1

Trim after polish:
Rear rocker trim. 9
Rear rocker trim. 10

Body after wash & wax:
Rear rocker trim. 11
Rear rocker trim. 12-1
Rear rocker trim. 13-1
Rear rocker trim. 14-1

Everything back together:
Rear rocker trim. 15-1
Rear rocker trim. 16-1

Might want to address that surface rust there. Clean it up and put some rust killer type product on it.

Por15 works awesome & coverage is excellent. Just a light sanding (not to bare metal & blow off the "dust") it actually bonds to rust & you can leave as is since the cover will go over it. Do both sides though.

Yes. Yes I did. I laid down over 55' of rubber on the ground.

I have no idea what happened to the original wheel opening moldings. It was the way it is when I got it. Sad

I do know, at some point in time, it was painted around the wheel openings. maybe the originals were dinged up. The original owners were quite old, so maybe they hit a few things...lol.
