• How long does it take to ship Chrome Moldings?
Our Chrome Moldings ship within 1-2 business days (does not include weekend days). Once they ship, you will receive an email with a tracking number. We manufacture our Moldings from our location in Cleveland, Ohio, and these are 100% USA-Made products!
• Does an order for Body Side Molding include only one side or both sides?
Each order of body side molding includes enough molding for both sides of your vehicle. Most molding kits come in 4 pieces, but some 2 door vehicles may only have 2 pieces (the 2 door pieces are longer and have formed ends on each side, so it still looks great!). Refer to the product description for more information on how many pieces are in the kit that you are interested in.
• Are your Painted/Chrome Body Side Moldings Die-Cut for Formed-End?
Our Moldings are Formed End Moldings. Our Extruded Molding, however, is Die-Cut.
• How do I remove my Body Side Molding?
Using two tools; wrap string around both, (screwdrivers, etc.), leave about 6” of the string between the two. At the corner of the moldings, slip the string between the moldings and the vehicle. Work the string back and forth, this will cut the 3M tape, do this until you can grab some of the molding with your hand. Push downward, toward the ground, this helps to release the tape from the vehicle. You may see some tape left on the vehicle; use your thumb to rub this off. A degreasing product should help to soften the tape. It’s not easy, and will take some time, but you will not damage the paint or clear coat!
• Is the Body Side Molding you offer the same as Factory/OEM Molding?
No. Our aftermarket moldings are designed for vehicles that come from the factory without body side molding. They are not Factory Molding Replacements. We design them to look like some factory styles, but it will not be an exact match. If you have a factory body side molding and would like to replace it with ours, please know that our molding may be made to be installed in a different location. Some factory moldings are drilled into your vehicle, so please consider that there may be holes underneath your factory molding.
• Do I need to use the Pro Bond™ Adhesive Promoter for my Body Side Molding Installation?
We STRONGLY advise using our Pro Bond Adhesive Promoter so that the Molding will stay on for years to come. We recommend applying a thin coat of the Pro Bond Adhesive Promoter where the moldings are to be applied (approximately underneath where the Moldings will go, try not to get it on parts of the vehicle where the Molding will NOT be applied to. The vehicle, or at least the area where you will apply the moldings, should be cleaned with alcohol prior to remove any dirt, wax, or debris. You will notice that the Pro Bond dries very quickly. This is okay, the Pro Bond should be dried prior to installing the Moldings. It will leave a thin polymer coating that may appear to slightly "dull" the surface (if Moldings are ever removed, buffing the surface will take away the dullness 100%). The Pro Bond Adhesive Promoter is not an adhesive, it is an Adhesive Promoter that preps the surface to increase the bond of the 3M Tape. One Pro Bond Crush Swab is enough for one side of the vehicle.
• There are no Body Side Molding options for my vehicle. Can you make Custom Body Side Molding?
We unfortunately cannot make custom Body Side Moldings due to tooling/manufacturing costs and restrictions. However, if you send us the desired lengths of each molding, we can see if any of our existing Body Side Moldings will fit your vehicle. However, an installation sheet will not be included, and returns are not accepted for any custom orders unless there is a manufacturing flaw. Another note to consider is the angle of the moldings near the door jam. For any custom moldings, a 90-degree, straight cut will be applied for this angle, which may or may not be a match to the door jamb angle on your vehicle. A good alternative may be Extruded Body Side Molding. These products can be cut to length, so it can fit any vehicle. Please navigate to our Extruded Molding products to see if these would be a better fit for your next project!
• What is your Chrome Body Side Molding made of?
Our Painted Moldings are made of ABS Plastic, and are then Chrome-Plated with real metals (Chromium, Nickel, and Copper). Our Chrome Moldings are of the highest quality in the market by far. They do not peel or fade over time, as our competitor's Moldings do, and they are a dense, high-quality, reflective-finish product that will speak for itself. This is why we back our Chrome Moldings with a lifetime warranty.
• Do I need to install my Body Side Molding in the location depicted on your Installation Instructions?
For each Body Side Molding Kit, we determine the lengths of the Moldings and the angles that the Moldings are cut at for the door seam in a spot that will provide the most protection to your vehicle. For this reason, we advise for you to install your Body Side Molding in the location that we depict on our Installation Instructions. If you install the Moldings in a different location, we can not guarantee that they will protect your vehicle as we engineered them to. Also, the angles and lengths may vary depending on where you install the Moldings. Many times, there are areas of vehicles that are "wavy/bubbly" which will cause the Moldings to lift from the vehicle after a prolonged period of time, so this would be another concern with installing your Moldings in a separate location. We must also mention that installing in a location other than where we depict on our Installation Instructions would void the Manufacturer Warranty.
• The Molding/Spoiler I ordered did not include instructions or installation hardware.
Please double-check the sock material. The instructions are rolled up in a separate section toward the end of the material. If you still are unable to find them, please contact us.
• I just had my vehicle waxed, will this affect the installation process?
Yes, in the area where you are applying the product, we advise that you remove the wax with alcohol wipes. The wax will interfere with the adhesion of your product, so this is important to make sure your product will stay on for years to come!
• Do I have to worry about Car-Washes damaging my product or interfering with the adhesion?
Just to be safe, we recommend avoiding a car wash for 24 hours after you install your product(s). Afterwards, you can have as many car-washes as you'd like! It will not damage or interfere with your product's adhesion.
• Will my Ceramic Coating interfere with the installation of your products?
YES. The product(s) will bond to the Ceramic Coating, and not to your vehicle, so once the Coating wears away after a few years, the bond will weaken and your products may come off. We advise not to install products onto a Ceramic-Coated Vehicle, but if you do, please frequently check to make sure that the bond is strong. Please keep in mind that installing our products onto a Ceramic Coating WILL void your warranty!
