Default PT Woody Chrome Grill...

Trim Kits -- ANY GOOD?



The pieces are so small I wonder if they would stay in place "forever"?

[8D]Gary - DO IT YOURSELF!!!! JaxPT is correct. It's REALLY easy and REALLY inexpensive! Go to www.imagestation.com and do a "member" search for PTRON to see mine (I used 3/8" wheel well molding available at any auto parts store).[8D]

If the surface is clean, the adhesive will hold - what you have to watch for is that eventually it will `get "cloudy" as the clear layer separates from the shiny layer - important to seal the ends - perhaps polyurethane or try a soldering iron - I've read of clear nail polish, but that doesn't last.

Thanks for everyone's response. From all that I have read the "cloudy factor" is a concern. I really don't want to replace the "chrome surround" on the griil each year. My general feeling when it comes to detailing is "less is more". Think I will leave well enough alone unless I decide to replace the grill which I have no plans to do at this time.

In all fairness, I'm certain it would last far more than a year. As it gets hit with small stones, etc, and the outer plastic gets penetrated, it does happen, but should last for several years, at least. Your call, tho.
You could do it now, and still replace the grille later.

Gary,
We've had our PT Woodie grille for over a year with no sign of discoloration. I just keep it clean (at least in the better weather) and waxed like the rest of the car. It was a very simple installation and, I think, looks great on some colors.[|)]
