Default My Headlight Cover Fix

I just removed the clear Lexan covers over my headlights and applied a chrome colored 1/4" "U" shaped vinyl molding around the perimeter edge of the opening. This gave the headlight assembly a more finished look and was inexpensive to do.

Are you sure it won't mess up the aerodynamics and decrease fuel mileage?! Seriously that looks great, after have tried my best to polish out the lean that looks like a great idea!

Chuck,

Can you give us a source and part number for this molding? I have the stainless steel surrounds coming and I think this molding would really be a nice finishing touch.

Hi Bill,

I bought an 18’ roll of Cowles Edge Trim Part # T5605 Chrome at Oreilly Auto Parts for 12 bucks. You will only need about half of the roll to complete the installation, so you will have about 9’ left over for spare material. Here is a link showing that profile.

I don’t know how the stainless covers are going to be fastened but if they are going to be glued to the inside of the black Lexan covers, the “U” shaped trim will interfere with that as it wraps the edge. However they do have a trim piece with a different profile that will only cover the outer and leading edge of the opening in the black Lexan. Here is a link to show you that profile. http://www.customautotrim.com/products/moldings/images/mdgdeg_lslv_lg.jpg

The stainless plates glue to the back of the cavity. Unless the molding is huge it will not interfere with the stainless
