    Default How tough are the irmy pillar trims?

    I have a set of B-pillar trims and i want to go fit them but it's not the warmest up here today. Anyone fitted them in colder weather and were they ok?

    John,
    as long as the surfaces are clean and dry - they will adhere
    just rub them with the palm of your hand when you have fitted it to help it stick and if your worried then break out the hairdrier to help cure them

    and i fitted mine latter part of last year....and cant honestly remember a warm day last year !!

    0-Large smile ......every time it's driven

    Cheers Dez, I take it the cleaner stuff that comes with them will get all the crap off before sticking them or should I use some thinners too?

    Well it's not the complete kit, it's only the b-pillars but who cares it should look ok. I made the clever move of buying a set from and estate. They aren't as sought after as the hatch ones but the b-pillars are the same as the hatch
