Sportwing explains the basics of chrome body side molding as well as a few
of the benefits you should know about.
One popular after-market upgrade you can give your vehicle
is a chrome body side molding. Chrome molding not
only looks good on whatever vehicle you're driving, but it has additional
benefits that you may not have known about as well. Here are the basics of chrome molding you should know about.
If you don't know a lot about cars, you may not be familiar
with the term body side molding at all. Body side moldings are small strips
added to vehicles after-market on the sides to provide both contrast and
additional protection against dents and dings. The molding is typically placed
down lower where dings commonly occur. Side molding can be made of rubber, PVC,
stainless steel, aluminum, or chrome.
As mentioned, the moldings are placed on the lower part of
the car where vehicles typically sustain damage from being "doored",
or from other causes as well. The molding protects your car by keeping the
damage from the main body of the car, which can be a costly repair, but it also
keeps the body of the vehicle in better overall condition. Fewer scrapes,
dents, and scratches lowers the likelihood of rust problems in the future.
Now that you know that side molding comes in numerous
materials, you may be wondering why you should choose chrome for your molding
material. Side molding is a common after-market addition, but many people
choose a color that blends in with their vehicle's color. However, you can set
your vehicle apart by choosing chrome. Chrome moldings are made of chromium,
which is known for its shine. Using chrome not only makes your car unique, but
it's also a durable material, so your car's paint job will be safer as
Installing side body moldings is easier than you may expect.
You can even purchase the kits online from a reputable dealer if you know your
vehicle make, model, year, and paint code, which is easy to locate. Directions
for installation are included with these kits and in most cases only require
simple tools that are likely in your garage already.
