Door and Dash Deluxe Trim Kit Instructions
Once you have
successfully installed the laminate you can begin to insert the
chrome trim. Wipe and additional bead of adhesive promoter over and
into the surrounding indent of the door panel. Starting at the
bottom of the insert just over the door handle pockets insert the
chrome trim into the indent as you pull the red release liner on the
back of the trim as you go. Try not to stretch the molding at all as
you insert it. As you approach the corners do not pull the liner.
You will need to pre-bend the corners by holding the molding firmly
with your thumb as you force the trim by packing the trim into the
corner in order to compensate for possible shrinkage of the trim
thru heat and time. Follow this procedure until you reach your start
point. You should have a small excess of trim simply snip the excess
with a pair of scissors just past the start point and force into
place to create a nice butt seam. Press the entire trim firmly to
for opposite door.
Interior vinyl surfaces that have been treated with any kind of silicone
treatment such as Armor-All or Vinyl Brite will make it so that
installation will not stick well and should be thoroughly with a cleaner
such as rubbing alcohol.
Clean door panel, Dash area, Door Speaker areas where you are going
to mount the moldings with household rubbing alcohol and wipe off
any and all residues.
Letís start with
the Speaker Circle perimeter. Carefully wipe the exact area where
the molding you are starting with is to be mounted with the adhesive
promoter packet provided. Pay close attention into and around the
indent surrounding the inset area. Only wipe the area right before
you are ready to mount the molding.
chrome molding laminate: The area where you wiped will be sticky,
try not to touch it. Take the molding and peel back about 6 inches
or so of the back liner exposing the sticky back side surface.
Always start at the bottom of the area you are going to put the trim
around. In this case start with the bottom center of the Speaker
circle that the trim is going around.
Put the end of
the molding at the bottom center and hold it there. While holding
this down carefully work the molding around the perimeter of the
round Door Speaker pulling the back side of the molding off as
needed. Move both hands following the molding around the Speaker.
Press the mounted are firmly as you go.
Once you have
gone all the way around the perimeter and meet up with where you
started pause. You will have more trim molding than you need. You
will need to trim it so that when you lay the end down to meet the
beginning it will form a tight fit. Lay the end down gently and
carefully mark with a pen on the molding where you need to make your
cut. While the molding is mounted take a pair of scissors and cut
the molding and lay the end down to meet the beginning.
