The fit is better than I had anticipated as is seen by the PIC in my post. These "chrome surrounds" are not made of metal (like the ones sold by Moss Motors at 6 times the cost) but are "chromed plastic strips" which are applied with 3M tape. For the "best fit" I recommend installing them in warm weather and/or using a hair dryer to warm the surfaces. This worked well for me. [8D]

Good find Gary. Another little excellent "detail" touch to set the interior off. [^]

Thanks for the information. It's going to be over 100 degrees here this week, so I'll install them one afternoon this week.[8D]

I tried to install mine and after cleaning the area the strips would not stick very well. Did you use the accelerator that comes with it? Also if you used the stuff...if you decide down the road to take it off does the accelerator mes up the plastic at all?

I just called 3M and they said that if you use the adhesive promoter it will marr the plastic. Another words down the road if you decide to take the peice off. The plastic that is was attached to will have a tan color marred finish that will not come off. Food for thought if you install a "MOD" that you may remove down the road. The problem is that without using this product it will not stick to the plastic no matter how well you clean it off.

I bought them and I am very pleased with my purchase as it was only $11 delivered to my door. Mine are sticking well and yes I did use the promoter that was supplied with the trim rings. I did have one slight problem and that was that mine were a little very little too long and had to be trimmed shorter. It really does dress up the lovwer door pannel!! Oh and the legendary service from Maggie was great as now expected!!

I didn't use the accelerator at all and mine are are sticking well--no problems whatsoever. From what I have read if you ever applied any type of cleaner/conditioner to the interior plastic it will be difficult for 3M adhesive tape to stick properly [:0] regardless of how well you clean and "prep" the surface.
