Thank you for purchasing our molding kit.
The molding you have purchased is made of the highest quality materials available.


Tools/Supplies Required (Not Included)

• Wax & Grease General Purpose Cleaner
• Isopropyl Alcohol (Rubbing Alcohol)
• Clean Lint Free Wiping Cloth
• Masking Tape (½”)
• Molding Cutter

Make sure you have all the required parts and supplies necessary for the installation. Organize the parts for the driver and passenger side in the appropriate order from front to back. With new advanced (low surface energy) paint systems it is imperative that all installation steps are followed for a successful installation.

  1. Temperature of the vehicle and molding(s) must be at least 70*F (20*C). (Installation of moldings at temperatures below 70*F (20*C) or above 110*F (44*C) must be avoided. The vehicle floor heater can be used to warm the molding.
  2. The body of the vehicle must be clean and dry to achieve maximum adhesion.
  3. The area where the molding will be applied should be cleaned with a general purpose wax and grease remover / cleaner such as TG Prep, followed by a wipe with the Isopropyl Alcohol using a clean lint free cloth.
  4. Align the molding with a key body feature (a bodyline or in line with the front and rear bumpers) to ensure proper molding alignment. DO NOT APPLY MOLDING DIRECTLY ON A RIDGE. Place the ½” masking tape along the desired installation area as a guide for applying the molding straight. DO NOT APPLY THE MASKING TAPE TO A FRESHLY PAINTED SURFACE.
  5. Leave enough clearance between the molding and the door opening so that the door will open properly after the molding has been installed.
  6. Remove the liner from the adhesive 8-10” at a time as you are applying the molding to the vehicle. Be careful not to contaminate the adhesive (Common sources of contamination: Oil from the installer’s hands, dust or lint from clothing, worktables or the floor. Do not touch the adhesive at any time. CONTAMINATED MOLDINGS SHOULD NOT BE USED.
  7. Apply the molding with a rolling motion to prevent entrapment of air between the tape and the vehicle surface. Use firm hand pressure to ensure good adhesion of the molding. ONCE THE MOLDING IS APPLIED TO THE VEHICLE SURFACE IT SHOULD NOT BE REMOVED.
  8. Rub the molding hard at least six times with a rubber roller to ensure maximum adhesive bond is achieved. Press hard with a blunt object on all molding ends to ensure a permanent bond.
  9. After the installation is complete remove the masking tape from both sides of vehicle. THE MANUFACTURER DOES NOT ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR DAMAGE TO PAINTED SURFACES CAUSED BY MASKING TAPE OR MOLDING REMOVABLE.
