Basic Installation of Body Side Moldings
LOCATION: Using masking tape, run the tape from point A (front) to point B (rear). Press tape against vehicle, making sure that the tape is straight from Point A to Point B.
CLEAN AND PREP: For proper installation of Body Side Molding, clean the surface where the molding is to be installed using rubbing alcohol. Wipe off excess with a clean cloth. Where cooler temperatures prevail, make certain the molding and vehicle is at room temperature. If the surface is cold, use a heat gun to warm before preceeding with installation.
INSTALLATION: Before starting, peel back 12" of the red liner, removing the rest of the liner as you install. DO NOT TOUCH THE EXPOSED ADHESIVE with your fingers as the installation is being done. (Note: excess skin oil will affect adhesion).
Since these moldings have been pre-cut, start adhering moldings, front and rear the the angle cuts first and the bullet side directed toward the appropriate wheel well adhered last.
APPLYING THE MOLDING using the bottom edge of the masking tape as your guide, peel the rest of the liner as you go.
AFTER THE MOLDING has been installed, use a soft cloth to apply pressure along the entire length of the molding to insure proper adhesion. Remove masking tape and you will have an OEM style custom Body Side Molding that will give you many years of protection.
