OK, so I have an XC90T6, 2003, and I posted this same question in our forum but someone recommended I post here as well since they said many R owners have had this "procedure" done.....<p>I am looking for a place (around Seattle) that would paint my door handles and side molding for a reasonable price. An XC90 owner in CO had it done for $800 (with new side moldings included in that price) but the 2 places I have checked here in Seattle both want $2000 or so.<p>Any suggestions? <p>Sorry for the infiltration of your forum, BUT, for the record - if I didn't have the need for more room a V70R would be in my garage NOW!!<p>Mason "fish"

Re: painting trim and door handles question (fish2live)

I would highly recommend Bellevue Auto Rebuild (note: not Bel-Red Auto Rebuild) on 130th, just east of the 124th exit of 520. They will charge more than Maaco, but they do top-quality work. A quick look at the types of cars parked out in front will confirm this. Steve Bronk is a very nice guy and will help you out with a quote, possibly even over the phone. The key to refinishing the moldings on the cheap is delivering them to a shop already pulled from your car. Your two highest expenses will be the labor to pull the pieces off and the labor to sand and prep prior to painting. There really is a lot of work involved so don't be too surprised by the cost. Many '04 R owners buy '05 moldings from the dealer as they are paint-ready. You might check to see if later XC90's have painted moldings. <p>Hope this helps - Tryg
