Fender Trim

 Shop Fender Trim

One of the easiest and most popular ways to modify a vehicle is to outfit it with a fender trim. This add-on will give your ride a classy look while concealing some unsightly marks or imperfections in the wheel arches. It's also affordable and very easy to install, but the enhanced appearance it can give your car can help increase its resale value. So if you're thinking of ways to doll up your ride, you'd better consider adding a trim piece on its fenders.

Depending on the type of trim you've purchased, it can be installed in any of these four methods:

Peel-and-stick method

What you'll need:

  • Peel-and-stick chrome fender trim
  • Lint-free cloth
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Measuring tape
  • Scissors

Step 1: With a rubbing alcohol and lint-free cloth, clean the spot where you want to attach the trim. Allow it to dry.

Step 2: Measure the length of the area where the trim will be placed and cut the right length from the roll of chrome trim.

Step 3: Dry fit the chrome fender trim to ensure proper length.

Step 4: Peel the backing off the trim, place the trim on its proper position on the fender, and firmly press it in place. To make sure the adhesive sticks well on the surface, wipe a smooth cloth over the trim. Don't wash the vehicle for 24 hours after the installation. This will give the trim enough time to sit against the fender.

Clip or no-drill method

What you'll need:

  • Clean soft cloth
  • Pliers
  • Alcohol
  • Pliers

Step 1: Clean the surface where the trim will be attached using clean cloth. If there are hard-to-remove dirt and particles, wipe them away with alcohol wipes or cloth dipped in rubbing alcohol.

Step 2: Get the no-drill clip that's included in the fender trim package and place its straight end through a slot in the trim. Locate the fender flange. The hooked side of the clip must be attached to the flange.

Step 3: With the pliers, pull the straight end side of the clip 180 degrees towards the fender.

Step 4: Press the clip flat against the fender. If you want low-profile installation, you can press the clip on inner mud guard fender.

Drill Method

What you'll need:

  • Clean soft cloth
  • Screw
  • Screwdriver
  • Electric drill
  • 1/8. metal bit

Step 1: Wipe away dust and dirt from the mounting surface using a clean soft cloth.

Step 2: Lay the fender trim in your desired position. With the pre-cut holes on the trim as guide, drill a hole on the fender.

Step 3: Insert a screw into every hole and tighten it using a screwdriver.

Step 4: Check for proper installation and clean the newly installed trim and the fender area.

Welded adapter type

What you'll need:

  • Clean soft cloth
  • Screw
  • Screwdriver

Step 1: Using a clean soft cloth, wipe dust and dirt off the mounting surface.

Step 2: Thread the screws into welded adapter holes. While making sure each screw comes in contact with the underside of the fender, carefully place the fender trim to its correct position on the fender.

Step 3: Check if the screw is properly positioned inside the wheel well and making enough contact with the inside part of the fender before tightening it against the underside of the fender. Don't over-tighten the screw to avoid damaging the trim. Tighten it just enough to securely hold the trim in place.

Step 4: Double check the position of the trim and the tightness of each screw and clean the area once again with the soft cloth.
