I felt for under $30 and a few hours of labor...it's definitely worth it since you can just remove everything if it looks like crap. I have watched videos for the window trim and it really doesn't look too bad. The worst part looks like the prep work and the clean up. The only difference in the method that the guy uses in the dipyourcar.com video is that I will spray the outer edges first and then spray over the trim. That way I won't miss the edges. That's how I painted my old integra wheels back in the day. Get the edges and then work on the easy parts.
