Unhappy

i installed them yesterday. easy. look very nice. however,here is the downside. the 3-m double faced foam tape they use to fasten them, is maybe 3/16 thick. therefor the actual molding does not fit tight to the body surface. so, there is a gap between the back of the molding and the door surface. i think this is going to be a problem with debris buildup. for this reason, i cannot give this product a thumbs up.

I had factory ones on my Ram and they looked like #%&@! after only about 2-3 years and wound up peeling them off witch was a pita. No matter what I did to them they kept fading and became such an eyesore I had to take them off, so I'm not a fan.
