This is a set of 81-86 Monte Carlo Chrome Front & Rear Bumper trim. As old as these cars are, I'm sure your original chrome has faded out, yellowed, peeled or cracked over it's life time. When painting a car this will stick out and detract from all your hard work. This is an easy way to get that fresh new look again. The new chrome will fill in the bumper grooves a lot better then the GM units did. You also get the 2 wide pieces that attach to the top of the rear bumper. On the front you also get the 2 front bumper guard pieces as well. All parts use quality 3M adhesive unlike a lot of others. So be careful when installing, they will require a lot of effort to get them off.
When these pieces were available from GM back in the day, they were over $420.00 from the dealership. Of course they have been long since discontinued.
On our new pieces you can see the quality via the reflection.
One picture show's the old gm top rear bumper trim pieces and how they look after sun and damage. Now you can replace them all with this new better chrome bumper trim.
To install this trim strips pull old trim off rubber bumper part. Then scrape off old adhesive from the bumper with narrow putty knife or a flat dull screw driver. Plastic tool is preferred as not to damage the bumper cover. 3M Adhesive remover is available in a lot of local auto parts stores. Removing all the old adhesive will give the best results. Do it once & do it correctly for the best fitment & adhesion.
Now you can take one piece of new trim & pull the red tape off the back of trim.
The blue coating removes off the face of trim a little bit, tuck one in at the beginning behind the rubber bumper part. This should be just enough to go in behind the rubber. An1/8" inch is good. Then pull the red tape on off back of new trim as you go to push the trim flat up against the rubber bumper and go across to the other end and tuck it in at end. Pull the blue plastic coating off the outside of the chrome trim. Do the front and back and top bumper the same way. The two bumper guard pieces are a flat trim that will lay in the groove where the old bumper guards come off. You can not get the bumper guards anymore and this is the only trim that will fit in it's place.
Make sure the new chrome trim is warm when you go to put it on and it will bend and lay flat better. If cold weather outside, a blow dryer helps to heat it up to make it soft and flexible.
NOTE: If your not 100% confident or sure installation should be done by a professional.
