Chrome Door Inserts

Folks,
About to install the chrome door inserts.. I am thinking to use rubbing alcohol to remove all oils and grit from the paint before the install. Anyone have any other tips and tricks around this particular install?
Regards,
Mike

Thats it. Make sure you mark exactly where its going before you stick them. Last advice dont do it they look real cheap.....

You are spot on - clean target with alcohol - their EZ to mount and press down

Best I've seen to avoid scratches behind the door handles is to have a shop that does the paint protection film (clear bra) cut a piece to put behind there.

Thanks yes great idea. Doing some research I decided not to install and get a clear bra piece. I traced the door inserts I had...
I am now selling a brand new set of door inserts.. LOL

I have them and like the looks. Also install the chrome hood vents.

can you post a picture of your inserts? I'm on the fence about it
