Re: door trims

Contact cement (also known as gorilla snot) works well. Most motor trimmers suppliers (check yellow pages) should be able to help you out for the vinyl. Make sure you get the automotive stuff as the domestic (house furniture) yinyl is not as durable.

Re: door trims

It is possible to get self adhesive chrome trim as well, depending on what size you want! May be possible to use the plastiv chrome trim that Ford use around their wheel arches - comes on a roll and is only a few $$ per meter. Has a self adhesive backing!

Re: door trims

Best place I've found for vinyl is Clack Rubber. Use the marine grade stuff, and it wont fade etc. As for attaching it, use quick grip. Works a treat. As for getting it shapped into tight spots, use a hair dryer.

Re: door trims

Heat gun works 10x better, but just be careful not to melt the vinyl
