Depends mate, what is your trim? If its Plastics then you need to rub it down and use plastic primer, give it another light sand and then spray it, I use Plasticoat primer, good luck [Y]

I used your std primer, std paint, and clear laquer, all sourced from my local paint shop in custom mixed spray cans.

The laquer is good to give a gloss finish however if you want matte, dont use it.

Sorry but those are the best pics I have as the others appear to have been deleted.

It takes a lot of prep work to remove the rubber surface coating from the trim, but is well worth it in the end.

Or just use scotchbrite....

The red stuff worked quite well! Or VERY FINE wet and dry, doesnt take it off at the best rate, but leaves a perfect finish. Too coarse a paper and you leave scratch marks which show up like mad when painted.

I love that rubber coating when its new and undamaged but looks rough after x number of years wear and tear.

Iits a pain to get off for a respray as already mentioned, another vote for scotchbrite here.

I used some halfords rattle can matt black, its quite a good match for the oem rubber covered trim
