Installation Instructions

Before you start you will need the following:

  • Installation Instructions provided with your package
  • Clean your work area. Surface must be free of dirt, dust and debris
  • Vehicle and trim temperature above 65°F
  • Soft clean cloths
  • Utility Knife
  • Masking Tape (optional)

Note:

  • Handle with care!
  • Protect your Stainless Steel Trim Pieces from impact and excessive bending which will damage their appearance.
  • Items damaged during install void warranty.

1.) Do not remove red tape liner or the protective covering until instructed to do so.

2.) Test Fit Each Piece: Lay out and test fit the Stainless Steel Trim Pieces before starting. Check that the shape and form of each piece properly. Each piece is designed to fit the contour of the vehicle on every location it is intended to be installed. Be comfortable with each piece’s installation location to ensure product installs properly.

3.) Clean receiving surface just prior to installation. Use 3M adhesive cleaner (or equivalent) to clean the area thoroughly. Receiving surfaces must be clean and dry before proceeding.

4.) For larger pieces, peel back the red tape liner about half way from the top just before installing. For smaller pieces, remove the entire red liner just before installing. Protect exposed tape from contaminants. For below the door pieces with a 90° top lip, cut through the back at the 90° corner. Peel back the lower section of tape backing about halfway down. Pull a small tab of red backing away from one of the ends of the top lip for peeling later. Do not peel the red tape backing from the top lip at this time.

5.) Hold the piece at 90° Angle to the vehicle and touch the very top edge to the vehicle, observing your placement and alignment guides. If you need to adjust placement, simply raise the piece past 90° and lift off.

6.) Once you get the placement right press down across the top of the piece to tack it in place. For smaller pieces complete the installation by pressing down across the piece, moving from top to bottom.

7.) For larger pieces continue to pinch the liner as you press down. For below the door pieces with a 90° top lip, continue to peel the lower section of the red tape liner by pressing down and across the piece as you go. Now, grab the exposed tab of red backing from the top lip and peel down firmly on the top lip to complete the installation.

8.) Apply pressure over entire surface including edges with a soft clean cloth to ensure the tape completely adheres to the vehicle. Check your edges and re-apply pressure where necessary.

9.) Lastly, remove white protective covering. You may use any non-abrasive stainless steel cleaner to keep your trim shining bright!

IMPORTANT:

  • Handle with care!
  • Once the tape adheres to the vehicle, the Stainless Steel Trim Pieces cannot be removed without being damaged. The surface of the vehicle, however, will not sustain any damage if the Stainless Steel Trim Pieces are removed in the future
