    Hi mikeb59
    Yes you can paint the flash band ! I'm going to paint the roof satin black as I don't clean the roof that much , only give it a wash every now & again ! But it's a lot less faff than trying to seal with owt else !!

    Hot air gun or a hair dryer & a small roller (not a paint roller) start at back & work your way forward ,2 bits over the front , should be able 2 see in picys ?
    + you can see on 3 door that it's painted !!

    Just fix them properly. About a days job to do it right.
    I bought new seals a couple of years ago when I did mine and they were about £40 for the pair and that was genuine landrover.
    Take the roof lining out remove the glass take out the frame. Fit new seals in the frame.
    Clean everything up reseal the frames to the roof and refit glass and roof lining.

    Get them fixed, had mine done, £350, with a two year warranty, came to my home all done in a day, with new seals drains cleared and resealed and the right adhesive to stick down the frame, both sunroofs, to be honest, when I saw all the work he did to get to them, I would have taken three times as long and it wouldn't have been as tidy
