Question Weathering of paint on Tacoma window sills

Those of you who live in hot arid and sunny weather may experience the black paint that covers the steel on the Tacoma's window sills flacks off. What type of paint is used to restore the sills to their original black color. I can find stainless steel sills as after market products, but no black sills except used ones. Any help out there in Tacoma World?

BBQ paint will survive anything.



Even being BBQd.


Just lay on a very light coat. The stuff is thick.
My city uses it for our traffic signal heads.

Thanks for the tip. I'll give it a try and picture post before and after. I was thing "Plastic Dip," but BBQ paint might be a better fix.

I had the same problem.. Tried bleach/water mixture then Mother's back to black before plastidipping it.. Turned out real good! Just make sure you let it sit and dry evenly so theres no streaks
