Side Molding


Recommended Posts

Padgett, best to do these when the pieces are warm (put in sunlight or heat them passively somehow) before trying to push them onto the plastic clips. You might try a spray bottle of soapy water to help it slide over the clips as well. If doing so, use Dawn or similar dish soap. Many liquid hand soaps of the anti bacterial variety seem to have a corrosive property. I have had nasty marks (almost like rust) left on the stanless steel sink bowl in my kitchen by Soft Soap and similar store brands. I'm not comfortable with what contact with this sort of soap may do to the paint on the car or the stainless steel inlay on the trim.

I'm not sure if these flexible trim pieces get hardened with age and exposure, but that seems to be in play here as I've also had difficulty reinstalling side moldings before.
