    What color paint for trim? same? and what?

    When all this dam snow leave my area (snowing AGAIN! and supposed to get 12 - 18 inches from it) im painting the trim on the raider. I dont know if I am gonna keep it blue again. Other than that, what is the best paint for it, stuff that wont peel the first summer, haha. Mine last year came off the 3rd time I washed it. This also includes the mirrors.

    Codeman.I painted mine with aqrilic urethane, with a flex agent, go to a good auto paint store and they will steer you right, the color varies from person to person, I went with a blue that was more on the side that looks stock, a more purple blue look, but it came out excellent, if I say so, hasnt come off in 4 years.....but any of that can come off if hit hard enough , when the stock side pieces get bad, with scrapes and discolored, a HEAT GUN will bring them right back, I know it sounds crazy, but it works perfect, it takes most scrapes out , or hides them real good, not a bloe dryer, it doesnt get hot fast enough and stay hot.....the heat gun at harbor freight and tools takes a whil also but it works......I can get the code for you if you want but i would rather you look at a color chart and see what you like.....you use automotive colors...look at the foreign cars paint chips that is where you will find some matching colors.
