The Sedan is Going to the paint shop soon. I was wondering what trim pieces you guys think i should paint

My Plan: Door handles, side trim , front and rear lip, maybe mirrors

Unpainted: Side skirts, obviously mud flaps, rear license plate section and mirrors depending

IMO i would leave the door molding black, paint the mirrors, get a new lip kit (front rear and skirts), get rid of that pinstripe and i think it would look pimp by tha way... what color are u gonna paint it?

Red-Door Handles,Front,centre and rear lip,mirrors.
Black-Door bumper Guards,Rear licence Plate section (either way is OK),Rims,wiper arms.
Any rear shots?
I can't see the mudflaps but leave them black or remove them is better if practical.
Remove Honda emblem at front.

probably respray of stock color. Was going to take care of pin striping during body prep/sanding. My moldings are nastified and dunno if i want to buy nicer looking ones, which is why i was leaning towards painting them

Ok. Leave the door moldings black, and I would leave the front lip, rear lip, and side skirts black. And the mud flaps black. Oh and the grill area on the front bumper should be black!

Everything else- paint red.

Like this VVVVV

pin strip will come off during sanding/body work. The side moldings are like destroyed (they look much better in photo's then real life) and i dont feel like buying new ones.
