So you just purchased from us a set of body side molding to protect your car door from dings or dents; while adding stylish looks to your vehicle as well. In this short article we are going to show you how you can easily install this body side molding by yourself in just a very short time. Trust us this is a very easy task that you can do by yourself without taking your vehicle to a professional shop to perform this task.
STEP #1. Remove any existing body side molding on your vehicle if it is so equipped. (Skip to Step #2 if this does not apply to your vehicle).
To easily remove any existing body side molding that has been attached by self-adhesive tape; please cut you a 12″-18″ long piece of string. Then grab each end of this string with your both of your hands and with an up and down sawing motion insert this string on the back side of each door molding piece to remove the entire piece. Remove any adhesive that remains on the vehicle with either glue adhesive remover and or alcohol.
STEP #2. Clean and prep the vehicle surface where the door molding will be installed with either alcohol or a cleaner degreaser such as Prepsol. NOTE: This is by far the most important step in the entire installation process; as the body side molding will not adhere properly if the surface is not cleaned properly. So take your time and clean the surface several times to ensure this is done properly. Then wipe clean the entire surface with a clean and lint free cloth.
STEP #3. If you have the universal style of body side molding that is not already pre-cut to fit your vehicle; then you will have to cut each piece to the correct length that you are needing. This can be done very easily by using a good sharp utlity knife.
STEP #4. The final step is the very easiest step of all. Just peel off the backing of the self-adhesive tape on the back side of each piece and apply it to the correct place on your vehicle. Then by using a good soft cloth apply pressure evenly over the top of each piece by rubbing to ensure proper adhesion.
Now it doesn’t get any easier than that to remove or install body side molding for your vehicle!
