Before an artist applies any paint, his canvas is just a blank, boring expanse. But with just a few strokes of the brush, suddenly there is interesting detail that catches the eye and draws the viewers attention. The same can be said of some cars and trucks. The sides of these vehicles are broad, plain painted panels that lack appealing features. But with the strategic application of custom body side moldings, like the ones you see here, attractive and enticing styling can be created. But along with creating an attention-grabbing appearance, body side moldings also have a practical purpose.

    If you look at a vehicle without body side moldings, in addition to the plainness the other thing you’ll probably see is a collection of car door and shopping cart dings. These scars not only detract from pride of ownership, if not repaired they can reduce value come resale time. And if a blow is sharp enough to chip paint and expose bare metal, rust and more serious damage can develop. Body side moldings can shield the doors and fenders from harm. Most moldings just stick on, and they’re much cheaper to replace than repairing and painting sheet metal panels.

    You’ll find a wide range of body side moldings on our digital shelves, with style and functionality that are sure to satisfy every taste and purpose. If your car or truck already has side and door moldings and you’re looking for replacements, we have original style moldings for all popular classic and late model vehicles. Or if you want to add some bright shine to your exterior we have a large selection of chrome body side moldings. And of course, there are the custom body side moldings you see on the page before you. With these you can add protection and improve your vehicle’s looks or emphasize and augment other body mods like rocker panel moldings and side skirts.

    We offer both universal fit moldings as well as moldings that are custom designed for each application. We have vehicle specific body side moldings in several widths that are perfect for adding style and protection. They can be ordered painted to match your vehicle’s factory color, but you can also customize the appearance further with a chrome insert or a painted insert in your choice of complementary or contrasting shade. Some are available with the vehicle model name embossed on the leading edge of the molding. These moldings can be delivered to your door ready to install. And since installation is easy with 3M automotive-grade double-sided foam tape, the same adhesive used by the OEMs to install trim at the factory, you can be enjoying your vehicle’s new look in no time.

    Our universal fit moldings also come with 3M adhesive for easy installation. You can choose from a variety of molding widths, profiles, colors, finishes, and textures. Some are offered with metallic edging and a choice of color insert, while others come in various style and width combinations of chrome and black. Still others are made similar to the styles and widths found on popular vehicle makes and models, enabling easy replacement of damaged factory moldings. These moldings are cut to fit, so you can apply the desired length. And there’s no need to limit yourself to traditional molding placement – you can be creative and use these moldings to make other areas like tailgates more attractive. Their flexibility allows them to easily conform to your vehicle’s body lines.

    Door panels and door caps install at the door’s lower edge. They are usually intended to blend in with or provide a transition between the door and other styling or aerodynamic modifications like custom rocker panels, side skirts, and custom fenders. Along with the previously mentioned components, many door panels are key parts of creating the “wide body” look. We offer these components for select applications in fiberglass and urethane. Depending on application, urethane parts can usually be installed with 3M adhesive, while fiberglass components require professional installation. Most come unpainted and ready for prep and paint. In addition to door caps and panels, for some vehicles we offer styling detail features like door strikes and quarter panel moldings.

    Great Match And Look.
    Looks excellent with perfect color match. Had professionally installed and show said they were well made and is considering to use in future jobs. Are thicker than ones put on at Toyota and should do better at protection from doors and carts.
