This morning I had time to install door sill guards. I have some free time while I’m at work. First thing you are supposed to wipe the surface with rubbing alcohol but I forgot it at home. So I used streak free glass & window cleaner made with vinegar. Cleaning the surface helps the guards stick. The guards have 3M tape that help them stick. Only thing I didn’t do is measure. But I think I did well. I could’ve had measuring tape to make sure everything is aligned and even on both sides. Hopefully they will stick on and last. I can always pull them off and replace the two sided tape. Both sides and front & back are competed.

A very nice addition you have there :D:D

3M tape can easily be made to have reinforced adhesive qualities by merely heating it up after you apply it to the item being stuck down. Simply use a hair dryer or a cigarette lighter flame and it then sticks like sh1t to anything ;);)

Thank you! I’ll keep that in mind.

I bought the guards two months ago. I was waiting for the weather to get a little more warmer. lol only one thing I noticed the logo has 5 slots instead of 7. lol not a big deal. I do like the mirror look though.

It’s not too many things I want to add to the Renegade. A couple more accessories but nothing too crazy. Probably start to save up money for really nice tires by the end of the year.

New tires are always fun. :)
