Default chrome spears below doors

I am interested in adding the chrome spears that go below the doors.
I have researched them in catalogs. I understand they go on with the 3m tape. My questions are:
Do they stay on well
Is it easy to install
Any suggestions before I put them on.
Any suggestions or experience during installation that i should know
Any hints on lining up the part properly to appear correctly
Any help I can get will be greatly appreciated.

Mark......I added the Chrome Spears as well and it's an easy task. Not that I don't trust 3-M products, but I did add a small bead of "Liquid Nails" along the adhesive strip for that "just in case" scenario. [8D]
As far as lining-up the spears.....they're fitted to the trim and can only be pressed on in perfect position. I have checked the adhesion often and so far so good.

I installed mine a year ago using the stock 3M tape, with no problems. (the stock ones are held on with 3M tape) However I will warn you, the chrome ones will show water spots alot more than the painted ones ever did.

The trick to keeping them on is the prep. Make sure the
area where you are putting them on is clean. I use 3M
adhesive & wax remover than alcohol.I put on the flat ones.

Mark, first off, Welcome to the Forums!
I bought mine to install myself but they offered to install them so I let them. The tape is holding up well on the spears, however I put on grill accents and one has started to come off. Maybe it was my prep work as Jimbo noted.

So do you put the chrome door spears over the existing ones? Or do you have to remove the old ones?

I like mine too. Well worth the effort I went through to get them on since mine are the actual spears and not the covers.
