Can any one confirm that the door edge where the chrome window moulding sits is in fact finished and painted. Part #4 in the illustrations below. I am considering removing that molding and want to make sure that the door edge beneath the molding is finished and painted. Seems it would be given that the door edge on the 300 base, touring, and limited, I believe it is, are finished and it is unlikely the automated painting program used at Brampton Assembly calls for that quarter inch door edge strip where the molding sits is to be painted on all but the 300 C and SRT8 models.

Let me know, if you know. Thx. :)

Yup it is painted under the the chrome but if you remove that part # 4 you have to get new part # 1 as it is shorter so the chrome takes up the space along the top .

Grunt, I take it part # 3 on the rear door and the corresponding plastic mirror molding on the front door are likewise a touch shorter on the 300C and SRT8 than on 300s without the chrome window molding? Thx.

HHMM , now you really got me thinking ,let me look into this . But I am pretty sure part #1 is the only outer trim part that is not the same between 300C(chrome) and 300 (non-chrome) doors

This would work, right grunt?
It will but you will have to order the chrome strips for your doors as trying to remove and reuse these once they are on the doors is pretty hard . They tend to bend and break as there is an adhesive strip between the door and the chrome that help hold them in place .

H4M,

I ended up going a different route when I realized the entire mirror assembly on each front door would need to be replaced. Turns out that the two applique pieces at the B pillar, the corner applique on the rear doors adjacent to C pillar, and the mirror pieces on the front doors - adjacent to the A pillar and that correspond to the corner applique on the rear doors - are all a couple of millimeters shorter for for those vehicles (base, touring and limited) without the chrome window trim. Hence, I decided to simply body match paint the chrome window trim and belt molding.

Thanks for the quick response, any pics by chance?
