One con of anodizing would be you'd have to take them off the car risking breaking clips, bending etc. What I like for trim is Sem's trim black. This stuff goes straight on preped bare metal without primer. Will last for years and you can mask off the parts and do them in place. It's a satin black where anodizing would have more of a sheen. My experience with it has been on early Porsche "Fuchs" wheels and Targa top bars as well as trim mouldings like you have. here's a link, hope to have helped

It takes about 2 minutes to remove the trim, Unless you are a bull you can remove it every day with hurting it.. It would take all day to mask and you would always be able to tell it was done that way.

Like Troy said, Take them off to paint them. If you paint them on the car, chances are that the paint will peel where there is dirt that you can't get to. That will result in the rest peeling too. If you are going to do it, do it right. You'll be glad you did.

the windows are coming out .I plan on doing as close to a frame off restoration as possable. Painting is ok if I could keep it from chipping off.
