CRX MkII moldings colors

Postby Laranjeira69 » Wed May 04, 2016 7:18 pm

Hello everyone,
Been trying to figure out what was the original color of the side, front and rear moldings, and also the "side squirts" and lower bumpers (that I think that are the same color).

The thing is that I can't find this info anywhere.. Some people says that they were originally black, others say "darkish grey" and there is also people that defend that actually the OEM color of the moldings was unpainted... :?:

I'm restoring my recent acquisition and I want it full original.

Here is the parts that I'm talking about if you didn't already understood:

Please try to answer the colors in their respective codes, THANKS!
The objective is adding this topic to the colors codes topic.

The correct answer for USDM cars is unpainted black plastic. In some markets they may have been painted the same as the body color.

If you can clean the original plastic up well enough that would be the most authentic finish. If you can't get the bare plastic to look good the black SIM bumper paint would probably be your next best option.

Thank you for the reply.

I'm from Portugal, Europe and my CRX is an ivt.

I think that it's mostly the same as the SiR.

I really want to know if it's black or unpainted..

It is not plain plastic originally. It has a dark type of coating on it, but it is not paint but some sort of other plastic.

It's just shiny black plastic. It's not colored, it's the original factory plastic dye.

All of the exterior plastic on the EDM i-VT model is black. If yours is faded, you can clean it with some extra-fine steel wool and keep it looking real good with one of the "back to black" products from Mother's or Meguiars. I do mine once a month during the summer, and it looks like new.
Keep it real. This is the only Honda forum worth my time. You make it happen.

I just refinished all my moldings and the lower sections of the bumpers when painting my car. I used SEM trim black for everything. color, sheen, and texture are all right on the money in my opinion. Here's a few photos of my parts with the trim black

Ok! This is a perfect way to keep the moldings!
Still would love to know how it was from factory.. painted, only plastic with or without a coating..

But.... I'm just going to buy that SEM and give it a try ;) lol
