pretty sure most plastics on the EA/B/D/F/L can be painted ... just no idea how good it would turn out tho as i have done none of this personally. or wrap it .. . . . . ....

They are fine to paint. All my wagons currently have painted d-pillar trims and the result comes down to prep. I personally do not paint the very bottom of them otherwise I would have to paint the trims all the way around to have it match
