Installing Rotary Accents

Here is a little how to on installing the rotary accents. I started with the rear as it was the easiest. Here is the rear kit. I used rubbing alchohol to clean the area.

Both accents are secured with double sided tape.

You get a packet of 3M primer to wipe down the area with after the alchohol.

After taking the backing off the tape apply the accent evenly.

The front accent is very similar. The one difference is that it comes with two small black pegs to prevent it from coming off. Here is the front kit.

Here is a pic of how the tape is on the front accent. If you do not have the front air dam you need to double the tape (which is included) on the inside front. Since I have the normal front end I needed to use the extra tape.

After priming with the alchohol and the 3M primer, take the backing off the tape and carfuly push the accent into place. You might need to pick up the lip of the bumper a bit. When that is done take each of the black pegs and push them into place.

There you go! Mine needs a wash but you need to wait 24 hrs to let the tape set before getting it wet. (at least that's what the instructions say)

Hmmm. I can get the RA for $155. That'd be the most out of pocket if I could install them myself. Hmmmmm.

Excellent DIY. I could have used it when I installed my rear accent.

Thanks! Simple, but there's nothing like photos to prove it.

I apologize for reviving an old post but is there anyway for you to repost the pics for the DIY RXDave? I just bought a used front rotary accent, it did not come with any screws or pegs as you mentioned and no double sided tape. So I am not very sure of how to tape this thing right to the bumper.

Thanks in advance!

Cheers

i have the same problem as stragox. i just bought the set of rotary accents but mine came with the double sided tape but no pegs or screws... is the double sided tape really enough? i'd like to get the screw/pegs on the front part but i dont think there is anything besides double sided tape that can be used for the rear accent. help!
