    Hey everyone, looking for some assistance in swapping over my esv's normal chrome trim to the RST gloss black stuff.

    I am only looking to change out the window trims and possibly the fixed running board trim, not the belt strips.


    From the forum i gathered this list of part numbers, However I have no clue which part number is what as the diagrams are zero help online and simply just say "moulding". From what I can tell the window surrounds are 5 Pieces per side, and the running boards are 2 per side.

    22772904
    22772905
    84160204
    84160205
    84126995
    84126994
    84126983
    84126984
    84126965
    84126966
    84126971
    84126972

    If anyone is sitting in front of the parts counter at work pleeeease help out haha! Thanks

    There are actually 6 strips to changeout on each side. 3 on the front window, 3 on the rear window:
    Surrounding the rear view mirror mount
    Upper front window
    Lower front window
    Upper rear window
    Lower rear window
    Rear window vertical strip

    I attempted this about 4 months back. While I was getting my oil changed, I found a blacked out RST on the dealer lot and got the VIN off the windshield, then went to the parts guy at the dealership. After he found the moldings, and priced out all of the trim (let me tell you, this guy was absolutely ecstatic about pricing out these parts), the total came out to well over $500 in parts alone; some of the strips were $120 a piece. And then, to install, you have to take the doors apart because the strips connect on the inside...which would be probably a full day of labor, if not a day and a half...but here is what I found out for part numbers:

    22772904
    22772905: (R) Molding RR S/D WDO GARN
    84160204
    84160205
    84126995: (R) Molding RR S/D WDO UPR RVL (BLACK); 84126996: (L) Molding RR S/D WDO UPR RVL (BLACK)
    84126994
    84126983: (L) Molding RR S/D WDO BELT RVL (BLACK); 84126982: (R) Molding RR S/D WDO BELT RVL (BLACK)
    84126984
    84126965: (L) Molding FRT S/D WDO BELT RVL (BLACK)
    84126966: (R) Molding FRT S/D WDO BELT RVL (BLACK)
    84126971: (L) Molding FRT S/D WDO UPR RVL (BLACK)
    84126972: (R) Molding FRT S/D WDO UPR RVL

    Not in your list above:
    84126966: (R) Molding FRT S/D WDO BELT RVL (BLACK)
    84126965: (L) Molding FRT S/D WDO BELT RVL (BLACK)

    Maybe somebody else can chime in with the other descriptions. Not sure what the other parts are. Hope this helps!

    Appreciate the reply! A roll of gloss black vinyl and some knifeless tape is sounding a whole lot cheaper at this point haha

    I have been thinking about going the vinyl wrap route a lot lately. Also want the cargo rails done.


    Heres a couple shots I got from 2different dealers near me on recent visits.

    Thanks to you both! I’ve been looking for this exact information. Agree tho, looks like a real PIA. Using the builder on Chevy’s website, it looks like the RST aesthetic package (no performance upgrades) is only like $2,600 including upgrading to the 22s from the 18s that my LT came with. Really wish I would have known that before buying, but I’ve also never seen an RST on a lot anywhere near that price. Always way higher. Might have to just throw in the towel and go the vinyl route...

    So I spent a few hours yesterday working with my buddy that owns a body shop on listing out all the parts to do the RST grille and trim. Most frustrating part: the stupid head light trim is only attached to the head light assembly by 3 bolts, can be removed in minutes, but can’t be separately purchased. Nope, only comes as part of the $1200 per light assembly. Dumb.

    To update the thread i ended up having the running board trim wrapped in matte black to make it blend in with the plastic. I am still going to be purchasing all the rst window trims as wrapping the oem chrome around the rubber gaskets will be a pain.

    Question on the running boards for you. I think I know the answer, but it just seems weird. Found an RST at a local dealer and trying to identify all the small parts / differences, and the RST has a small piece of gloss black trim that, if I recall correctly, was sort of inlayed into the outer corner of the otherwise flat black / gray plastic running board. However, when I got home and looked at the running boards on my LT, they were the same flat black / gray color, but the outer corner was solid. No indentation or place to inset a piece of trim. Are there really two different running board that are identical other than the fact that one is molded to accept trim and the other is not?
