How to install carbon fiber roof molding?

The whole roof molding installation process can be wrapped up in six quick steps, all of which are laid out below.

1. Clean

Before applying any roof trim, be sure to clean the area. Roof molding will stick best on a surface free of dirt, dust, road grime, and wax, so be sure to remove any stubborn spots, including leftover adhesive residue.

2. Measure

Inspect the length of the roof molding. Just hold them against the roof itself to see how they measure up.

3. Trim

Trimming can be done either before installation of while installing the roof molding. If trimming is done before installation measure twice and cut once. Trimming can be done with a good pair or scissors or a razor blade. A razor will give you the best finish on the edges.

3. Apply

Peel off the backing from the roof trim, and begin sticking it to the desired area. Use your fingers to push down and smooth out the trim as you go. 

5. Repeat

Repeat on the opposite side.

6. Smile

Admire your own handiwork and resourcefulness in equipping your Honda, Toyota, Lexus, etc. with roof trim. This might actually be the step that takes the longest. Go ahead. Pat yourself on the back a little longer. You can even add more time to this project by inviting other people to come see what you accomplished. Family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, and total strangers passing by are all fair game.
