Default 'Bird Projects & Modifications

All, getting away for a moment from the Medicare quagmire, how about a more pleasant question.

The wooden molding around the inside of my driver's window and passenger window are getting a little old with the paint cracking and flaking off. I was studying that molding this last week and it looks like those trim items are simply screwed on, the screws of course being covered by the little wooden buttons/plugs.

I was thinking about removing this molding on both windows and taking it to a good cabinet man here in town and having them refinished.

What says all my 'birder friends?

I took them off and sanded them down and painted them myself.
I have seen them covered in fabric.

If you take it to someone, be sure to explain the environment. That is, they will be exposed to moisture and direct sunlight. Most lilkey a marine finish product would be best. Same applies if you do it yourself.

The screws actually screw into a grove in the aluminum window frame. I found when I removed mine that there were 8 screw plugs on most windows, but on the smaller windows only 4 were used. I would remove the screws on the vertical portion of the frames firs,t as I believe they were the ones most used. If you sand them and then spraw them with a spray paint can you should be able to get good results.
