Default Chrome Door Spears

Picked up a set of these today. They are the factory ones that replace the colored ones I have now. They are the ones for an 01-05 but from what I have read and what I could tell comparing them to what I have they will fit just fine.

The guy I got them from bought them for his PT when he got his brand new in 2001 and then decided to go with custom paint and never used them. They even had the Mopar install instructions in the box. Got them for $70.

I haven't got them installed yet. I plan on doing it this Saturday and then I will post pics. i can't wait to get them on but I am not looking forward to getting all that old adhesive off. That 3M tape just does not like to come off.

Got them installed over the weekend. I will get pic's soon as I messed up my right shoulder putting them on. Getting the old adhesive off is a killer and is what messed up my shoulder.

I got the spears off with out much effort but the adhesive was a whole different story. Took me about four hours of scrubbing to get all of the adhesive off. I used the 3m adhesive remover and a home made wooden wedge to scrape it all off and to get it all gone.

The new ones go on with out much issue other then getting them lined up. The indentations they go in make it fairly easy. What I did was pull the liner a little bit on top and bottom and stick it down as I went along. The problem is the spears stick tight against the sheet metal and will prevent the red liner from being pulled and so the liner tears off. This means you have to take the spear off to get to the red liner.

Like I said I will get pics up very soon.

RED and Spears look great not that I am bias by my opinion of a RED PT with Chrome Spears.

The tinted front windows look really good I wish I could get away with it unfortunately living in California you get targeted for a nice $150+ ticket.

The front windows aren't as dark as they look. I had them matched to the factory tint. In fact that was the first mod I did. I was driving it home from just picking it up and stopped at my local tint place to find out how much and they said they could get it in right then. The price was right so i had it done. And I was bitten by the mod bug lol.
