Removed Front fender flares... applied 3M trim

So .. awhile back removed my front fender flares , I really like the look without them but It did look a little "unfinished" , as if something was torn off, I used the ol Google button and found some 3M trim material that has an adhesive strip on it and screws. Its Essential to use a heat gun to get this stuff to bend,, but once it heats up its very pliable. here is a link to the material

https://www.ebay.com/itm/236-Inch-Ma...72.m2749.l2649

Ill post some step by step instructions if there is any interest in doing this mod .. Cheers

Re: Removed Front fender flares... applied 3M trim

This turned out great since I agree that the bare flares can look unfinished. How secure is it, just adhesive backing? Do you think it will hold up over time?

Would love to see a quick write up if you have the time.
