    I used krylon gloss black as basecoat then topped with a clear coat. To remove them you have to pull out the window weatherstripping and access the screw that holds it to the door. wet sand with 600 grit to prep, lay down primer then color and clear.

    I don't see the 97-03 sedan listed, but maybe you could email them and make sure. It's a temporary solution, but considerably easier than disassembling the doors.

    Rvinyl responded quick,they do not have them. They suggested buying a sheet of vinyl and cutting and forming them myself.

    IMHO you're better off removing and refinishing with fresh paint and clear for the following reasons:
    1. they are not hard to remove
    2. you can sand and prime to remove any rust. wrapping will trap moisture and cause further rust
    3. You can change color if you want to (say an argent gray instead of black)
