Next time you go to a classic car show, look at the cars of the 50s and 60s. Specifically, look at the side window areas. You’ll see that just about every model has bright chrome trim framing the windows. Contrast the visual effect of that gleaming chrome with the boring black window trim found on most cars of recent decades. Many consider the 50s and 60s the golden age of car design, and the liberal use of chrome in that era is one of the reasons.

Over the years chrome was eliminated from most cars, including the window area, due to cost and changing tastes. Many recent cars and trucks are fine examples of automotive design, they’re just lacking the bright work that would really put them over the top. If this describes your ride, you’ve come to the right place. We can set you up with chrome for just about everywhere, including chrome window trim that will really make your side windows pop.

Examine the many examples of bright window trim shown on this page and punch in your year, make and model to see what we have for your car or truck. Although availability will vary according to vehicle and accessory manufacturer, in general we can offer you chrome and polished stainless steel sill trim, pillar posts, and complete kits with trim pieces to surround the entire window. These aren’t universal strips that have to be cut to size; each piece is specifically designed for the application, so you get precise fit and perfect appearance.

You’ll love the way our chrome window trim enhances the appearance of your car or truck, but these moldings won’t just look great today, but also for years to come because our window trim is manufactured from durable materials like stainless steel and ABS plastic. 304 stainless steel is a premium grade of stainless with a high chromium content that resists corrosion, and ABS plastic is impact, heat, and chemical resistant, and commonly used by the OEMs for trim parts. Depending on application, the stainless steel may be polished to a mirror-like gloss or triple chrome plated, and all ABS plastic is chrome plated.

Besides impressive looks, our chrome window trim’s other great feature is easy installation. You won’t need to make any body modifications to install our window trim, and there are no holes to drill or fasteners to tighten, so you can leave the power drill and tools in the tool box. Instead, our chrome window trim attaches with 3M acrylic foam tape, which is so strong that it’s used by the vehicle manufacturers to install trim at the factory. To install, just clean the area thoroughly to remove anything that could prevent adhesion, peel back the film from the pre-applied adhesive, and press the trim piece into place.

    Chrome Trim: Overlay vs. Replacement
    One of the more eye-catching tricks automobile manufacturers have used to differentiate higher-priced luxury versions of a car model from value-priced versions of it has been to vary the amount of chrome trim on the vehicle. Base model cars and trucks (also known as "strippers" or "entry level") have little if any chrome while luxury and top-of-the-line ones have the most chrome. In years past, plain Jane cars were simply painted in all areas instead of being chromed. In more recent decades, the low-cost replacement of choice has become black plastic. This makes base models easier than ever to spot because the eye catches hard on black plastic. Completely missing is the pleasing chrome finish on grilles, door trim, mirror assemblies, light bezels, and other areas. Base models end up looking more like fleet vehicles or work trucks than anything prestigious, especially to people who aren't automotive enthusiasts.

Carbon Fiber Pillars
Exactly what i expected. The pillars were thinner than i thought which is a plus! They fit flush with the groove on the door trim. Is real carbon fiber. And is not that simple to install. I had experience with pillar installation before so i had no issues, best way to do it is to remove the top adhesive film, fold in half and place bottom to line up with top. Then press on the top to adhere to car and work your way down. Great product. Adds a nice accent to vehicle.
