Hi Guys,

So I want to add more chrome pieces to my civic but I am unsure if they are difficult to fit on, or if they will fall out eventually. I am very new to the car accessories world so any feedback would be great on this.

Here is an example of something I was looking to get. https://www.amazon.com/Chrome-Light...sr=8-10&keywords=2016+civic+sedan+accessories

How hard would it be to install something like this? https://www.amazon.com/Drive-Window...sr=8-26&keywords=2016+civic+sedan+accessories

Thanks!!

Depends on the kind of glue they use to stick those on or if it's double sided tape. I'm always a bit wary in case they damage the original paint/cover. The seller doesn't say what's used to stick those on.

those are stuck on using the same double sided black tape that's used to stick on emblems, or at least that's what should be used, it will hold up to just about all weather conditions as long as install is done properly and that's where a lot of people mess up.

this is it, (not my picture)

Thanks for the feedback, do you know the proper way to install them?

It says on both of those products that 3M automotive adhesive tape is already attached. So you would clean the parts you're covering with isopropyl alcohol, let it dry fully. Then take out the aftermarket piece that will be covering the area. Underneath the part there will be adhesive tape, so take off the layer of film guarding it. Then place the part over the existing part and press it down with a decent amount of force for 10-15 seconds. That should pretty much be it.

Awesome thanks!

I saw some chrome window trim for the lower section of the window exteriors, also some door handle covers, I think they were ebay items.

Not a problem, can't wait to see what you get done. Post progress pictures !! ;)
Just ordered a set of mud flaps, chrome door handle covers and matte chrome window button cover! It is going to arrive between July 20th and August 10th, ughh such a long waiting time!

The waiting time is definitely killer, especially with the broad range. I would be readily waiting at my door from July 20th day in and day out ahah !

Good choice on the mud flaps, one time I bought a car used that had them, took it off weeks later, next day it rained, and all I saw on the exterior was a whole bunch of crap I never seen before. After that day, I kept the flaps on! Didn't realize they did THAT good of a job.
