Reflects the image off the box perfectly.
|The pictures at left illustrate how our chrome moldings are perfect mirrors and
reflect the product boxes they sit on.
Auto moldings by Cowles or Trim-Gard are made of the finest quality materials to provide easy installation and long lasting performance. Moldings are made with virgin PVC cores and 3M acrylic automotive mounting tape.
Chrome Moldings are made with a reflective aluminized polyester film (Mylar) sandwiched between a UV protective coating and a vinyl backing that attaches the film to the translucent gray extruded vinyl core. In most cases, the Mylar film is wrapped around the molding core to the back side so the edge is protected by the 3M tape and not exposed to the elements. Care should be taken to avoid abrading the protective film, which can then allow salt and road chemicals to degrade the reflective properties of the Mylar film.
All mouldings are flexible and easy to work with.
Wider widths come with two strips of 3M peel'n'stick tape, narrower widths come with one strip.
Molding Kits come packaged in lengths convenient for the do-it-yourself installer.
Body side moldings can be used to enhance the appearance of your car or truck as well as function as a protective barrier for those nasty parking lot mishaps. Side trim molding for trucks, cars, vans, SUV's, RV's, etc.
Easy to install. All of our molding comes with 3M
acrylic automotive foam tape attached and ready to peel and stick on. Once
applied, 3M peel-and-stick pressure-sensitive self-adhesive backing not is
affected by weather or road chemicals. Not available in stores, we offer our
trim moldings direct to you! Why pay for expensive dealer installation?
The picture at left shows the professional tool used by our
installers to cut molding, with 3.75 inch long replaceable razor blade. The
Center picture shows Husky Multi-cut tool available in hardware stores for
about $20. The picture at right shows an Craftsman anvil-style cutters with
replaceable blades available at Sears.
Prepare the vehicle bonding surface by cleaning it thoroughly with regular isopropyl rubbing alcohol and a clean lint-free white cotton rag or clean disposable toweling. Do not use shop rags which may have dirt or oily residues. For more professional results, use 3M brand Prep Solvent 70 or similar products available at many auto stores.
THOROUGH CLEANING removes oily or waxy residues so the 3M Peel-and-stick adhesive can bond securely. Avoid using colored cloth rags for this purpose, as dyes in the fabric may leave colored residue behind.
We do not recommend using packaged alcohol towelettes because they may contain antimicrobial agents such as Benzalkonium Chloride, skin lotion, conditioners, or other additives which could leave residues that may prevent proper adhesion of the 3M tape.
If you use packaged towelettes for one cleaning step, you should follow that by another cleaning with clean disposable toweling and alcohol or 3M cleaner. Do not re-use towels from one cleaning step to the next, since they may re-distribute residues you are trying to get rid of.
Some common automotive products, such as silicone-based waxes or surface conditioners such as Armor-All or Tire Shine. may be more difficult to remove completely. If such products have been applied to the surface any time in the past, it may require 4 or more repeats of cleaning with new clean cloth and alcohol or 3M solvent to completely remove. If you have any doubt of cleanliness of the surface, test with a small piece of masking tape to different area’s that have been cleaned. (Use a new piece of masking tape for each area tested.)
If the masking tape peels off without much resistance, repeat cleaning steps until the masking tape sticks aggressively.
We have found that 3M tape adheres better to painted surfaces than plastic ones. This is due to the inherent smoothness of the paint, where the plastic usually has a fine textured surface that tends to hold onto wax residues and may need more thorough cleaning.
If you do not have a ridge or line to follow on the car,
Chrome Moldings are made with a reflective aluminized polyester film (Mylar)
sandwiched between a UV protective coating and a vinyl backing that
attaches the film to the translucent gray base vinyl extrusion. In most cases,
the Mylar film is then wrapped around the molding to the back side so the edge
is protected by the 3M tape and not exposed to the elements. Care should be
taken to avoid abrading the protective film, which can then allow salt and road
chemicals to degrade the reflective properties of the Mylar film.
Phil, I received the (1/4" Chrome) Molding today. It was exactly what I needed.
I appreciate your help with the order. I will add you to my favorite sites.
I may want to add molding on the car after it is painted. I will stay in
touch. Thanks again for your help!!!!!!!! Mel L, Lagrange Ga
I received the (1/8" Chrome Trim) molding yesterday in good condition and some is on the car already. I am waiting for a dashboard piece to be painted to do the rest. It went on easily and I got exactly the results that I wanted. You have a happy customer. Grant B, Harisburg PA
Phil I purchased the (M38-640 2 inch Chrome side molding) some time ago and today because it was warm I put it on my Canyon. I am surprised how good the truck looks. Thanks for suggesting the chrome molding. Another happy customer. Robert G Millsboro DE
| I got door molding for my Colorado from AutoAmenity. They have any
kind you could ever imagine. There are different size sections to click on with
about 15 to look at in each section. I got the 2 inch chrome ones, they have 3M
tape on it.
