sticking trim back on
« on: March 21, 2014, 08:36:02 pm »
Had my arches rolled (badly) which im not happy about but is another matter, because of this obviously the screw holes on the trim are now redundant. Im having trouble one finding a product for the job and also 2 finding a way of securing the trim to the arch for any adhesive to go off have use solo cramps/ quick grips with no joy and dont wanna scrath the fresh paint!

Any advise would be much appreciated!

Don't use tiger seal!! It's messy and bodge! Get some proper double sided adhesive foam tape, it's designed for exactly sticking trims back on

Also who did you get to roll your arches? I'm looking to get mine done, but not settling for anything less than perfect
Thanks taylor

im glad you suggested the tape have used tiger seal on part of it and found it wank! im yet to try and take It off Hopefully will come off easy enough. I had a guy I knew who lead me to believe he could do it. If it was me again I would take a step back and think do I really need it done!!!

Scotch the trim with grey scotch and clean It up really well, I stuck all my trims on after my respray and stick like shit to a blanket

Ah dammit!! My wheels scrub badly, I really don't want to roll my arches but don't have much choice! Wheels are one in a million so not selling them

Just a wee opinion lol..........I used the double sided tape but it just wasn't strong enough because the wheel arch trim had to much flex behind it and was constantly trying to pull itself away from the car body. So I used the double sided tape AND some Tigerseal and it ain't coming off - Tigerseal is not soooo bad ;) - double sided foam tape for the bit up the length of the car definitely, but foam tape and Tigerseal for the arch trim for anybody looking to do it in the future....

tigerseal is ok as long as you accept the fact you'll never be able to take it off again!
