Vauxhall Side mouldings
Remember that time in the parking lot when someone opened their car door and it hit the side of another vehicle? The scratch, dent or paint-chip is one sad sight. You do not want this to happen to your Vauxhall. So, how can we prevent this from happening? One way of protecting your Vauxhall vehicle is to install side moldings. A side molding is a strip made from either ABS injected plastic, rubber, PVC, aluminum or vinyl. They are available in different lengths and sizes to match your car’s specifications. It is installed on the side panels of the car for protection against dents, paint-chips, scratches and blemishes. Side moldings enhance the look of your car, too. They can give that sleek style look.
The Vauxhall side moldings for other models like the Agila, Corsa, Astra, insignia, Meriva, and the Zafira are manufactured to each car’s specifications. Vauxhall’s side moldings are guaranteed outstanding in quality. Most of these side moldings are OEM painted matching your car’s color. They can be bought in auto parts shops on land and online.
When choosing side moldings, you should make sure they are weather and peeling resistant plus they should match the color of your car. Most dealers offer a lifelong warranty. A common problem with side moldings is they peel off in the long run. They become loose due to extreme weather conditions and constant car washing. The best thing to do is to check them regularly and reattach them securely before you hit the road with flapping side moldings. Side molding installation can be done in your car dealer’s service bay. Yet, you can install it yourself. A side molding kit contains four strips of molding, adhesives and cleaning materials. Installing side moldings can be a bit difficult during the first time. The trick is to make sure you get the exact measurement of the distances before installing.
