[DML] refinishing windshield trim pieces



Hi Group,
 
Today I removed my A-pillar weather stripping and took off both side  
windshield trim pieces and the top windshield trim piece.  I intend to  refinish them 
to a like-new look and replace the old  weatherstripping.
 
I ordered new pads from Grady for under the two side strips.  I see  there 
are supposed to be small square pads on the sides by the screw  holes.  I didn't 
get those but I might just use the old pads and cut them  up to make them 
work.
 
What's the best way to prep and paint the strips?  I stripped all of  the old 
adhesive off, but I didn't sand all of the old paint away.  Should  I get 
them down to bare metal, then prime with metal primer and use some black  spray 
paint?  Any suggestions on the best paint for an OEM look?
 
I also see the top strip used to have some white silicone sealant along the  
front edge.  What kind of silicone was this, and how should that be  applied?
 
That's about all I have for now. Just trying to wrap up a few long-delayed  
projects before DCS.
 
Thanks for the help- 
Andy
