Black door pillars

Hi guys I'm looking to make my door pillars gloss black kinda the color as my black 745 so I was wondering how to do it. I looked on eBay and there are some gloss door pillars but $50 seems too much for it. I've seen some of the people here have done it so if you could let me know where did you get it from and how much that would be great

you can get gloss black vinyl and just vinyl it. I bought some off ebay for little over 30 but that was a long time ago and they are okay

Yeah I looked on eBay for those but they are a bit expensive for cheap vinyl lol 30 to 50 is a lot for that IMO but if I don't find anything else I'm gonna have to get those I guess

I think painting them is the best option. I was thinking of vinyl for my lights an I ended up painting them and I might just do the same for the pillars
