2017 Black Side Bottom Molding
I am so disgusted with myself...I have ruined the bottom trim below the doors on the driver and passenger side of my new Outback! I somehow drove through a lane of newly painted white line on a highway and it splashed only on the bottom trim and the splash guards. Thinking it was soft enough, I used a mild scouring pad to try to get the paint off. My trim is now scratched and grayed. It did not affect the molding on the bottom of the doors however.
I've looked on many websites and can't find the molding nor the part number. Any ideas for a part? Is this something I can replace myself or something the dealer should do? I also thought about trying a bumper paint made by Duplicolor. Any thoughts on that?
