paint door moulding trim (with photo)

Hi,

The plastic trim or moulding on my doors is looking really old and damaged. I was wondering if it's possible to paint them without making it look worse.

Has anyone tried this before?...

Do you mean you couldn't remove the whole assembly off the door to work on it? It was pretty easy for me. I removed it from the top. Use the screw driver to push up a metal clip holding it in place.
