1978-81 Pontiac Lemans front and rear chrome bumper trim replacement kit. The kit fits the 1978-81 Lemans, Grand Lemans and Grand Am cars.
Our kit replaces the factory front and rear chrome bumper trim. This is an easy way to replace the faded out, dull, peeling, or missing trim.
No better time to replace when getting a new paint job.
This chrome trim is a solid chrome finish. Unfortunately our kit does not have the 2 thin black stripes in it like factory bumper trim had.
This solid chrome finish trim is the closest we can find to fit the front and rear bumper covers. The grooves are perfect and look great once installed. This chrome trim will fit the front and rear bumper covers perfect.
Carefully remove the old trim.
Remove all old adhesive and dirt from the bumper cover where the old trim was removed Take extra steps to make sure the groove is clean and dry.
Take the new trim out of the Box. The trim is marked on blue plastic tape where each piece is installed on front or rear bumper. Remove and pull off the red tape from the back of the trim. The new 3m adhesive strips be able to stick to groove of bumper cover. When the trim is pushed back against the groove surface you start at one end and stick to bumper groove. You now want to push the trim against the bumper and go across to other end of bumper.
*Note: You may have to cut the other end off a little because trim is longer then needs to be. The reason is to make sure there is plenty there to do the bumper covers in case of stretching or sagging. You can mark on blue protective tape on front of it where it needs to be cut off and use razor blade, razor knife, or shears.
Once installation is complete keep the trim waxed like you would your cars finish. The trim will last the life time of your carís paint.
When installing sure the trim is warm before you apply. This allows the trim to flex and bend. *COLD WEATHER MAKES TRIM HARD TO WORK WITH. You can use a heat gun to warm up the trim before installing. The trim will lay flat and install easier during cold weather once warmed up.
What do you receive? You will receive 2 long pieces of chrome trim strips to do the front and rear bumper covers.
