2004 v70r original trim color?

Post by Redbox » Sun May 14, 2017 7:21 pm

Hi all,
I'm detailing a 2004 v70r, and want to fix up the side moldings and bumper moldings, but can't tell if they were originally black and just faded, or if they were originally dark gray. I've seen lots of pics, some look jet black, others body color and some gray. Car color is Titanium if that makes a difference.
Thanks for any advice.

Dark grey
Most spray bumper paints work just fine, buy the darkest available
Buy these cans in most automotive parts stores.

You can use "black stuff" but it will fade or wash away in a while.
Painting these properly will last for years
