Am looking to retrim the door caps and the caps around the cockpit. Had to replace the door cap metal pieces due to extreme rust. The other metal pieces have some rust as well.
Is it a good idea to derust and paint these metal pieces before trimming them with vinyl? Will the paint interfere with the contact cement? If paint is acceptable, which paint would be best?
As always, very grateful for the knowledge of the members here and your willingness to share. Thanks!

Look into powder coating. You'll need to rough it up for glue to stick real good but you won't worry about rust.
