As I said in my install I will take pics when I get the car clean and outside. Right now it's still in the garage and hasn't moved since I did the install. My inlaws are visiting and they parked right behind the B9 I will take them soon though. It seems scoobymods is having problems today for some reason. Sometimes it's working and sometimes not. I started having problems during the install page uploading.

Will it help keep the A-Holes of the world from door-dinging me (again)?

I've got a big dimple right on the crease of the rear driver-side door because some ass-bucket couldn't control the door on the POS van! Perhaps they were just envious?

Where do you get this molding by the way?

I have details in my link above. I know it just pi**es me off when I get a door ding. Every time my kids get out of the car I warn them to watch for the person next to us so they don't give someone else a ding. It's just common courtesy is all. I try to park away from the crowd to minimize dings but somehow they happen eventually. I'm hoping these at least minimize the risk some. The other day when my wife looked she commented how they looked like they were always there on the car. So at least they don't look out of place.

I still don't see any info on where you get these moldings. All I see in your link is:

Before the install I cleaned the area with bug and tar remover. Next I used a 50:50 mix of rubbing (Isopropal) alcohol and water then dried that off.

Tips / Watchouts

The directions say to make 3 marks 1.6" down from the crease in the door to use as a guide for the masking tape. I found this to be incorrect. The molding I received was 2" wide, that would put the tape under the molding. I measured down 2.1" and put the tape there. Maybe the molding was 1.5" at one time I'm not sure, not a big deal just measure yours and give a little extra room.

Note how it says to make a mark 1/4" from the center door seam on the tape. It's important you do this properly. If it's too close to the seam, the door molding in the back will hit the front door when you open it (see pic).

My molding was colour matched. There was some over spray on the back tape. When I did the first side and started pulling back the tape to expose the sticky glue, the paint was flaking off all over the place. I was afraid the flakes would stick to the glue, making for a bad seal. Best to take your finger and rub the paint off as much as you can from the red plastic. It comes off easily. I set the molding in the sun for a little bit to warm. It was pretty flexible and with some minor bending the paint pretty much flaked off on it's own with a minimal amount of help.

I have to confess I didn't use the masking tape all that much as a guide. I kept an eye on the distance at the top of the molding compared to the crease. That helped me more than the tape itself. I just gently stuck the top part on, stepped back and checked the alignment. While I don't suggest doing this, I was able to reposition one strip that looked a little off. Once I had it the way I wanted, I rubbed down the strip with firm presses using a clean cloth.

scroll up on the page and you will see it It seems that link put you in the middle of the install page. It's there though you just have to scroll up. I fixed the link.

Looks good but I think I would want it higher eg about the height of the top of the wheel wells.

I always get one ding on every car... The STi got one within a week... The Legacy got one within 2 week... right on the character line... So far the Tribeca has been ding free. I always get them pulled ASAP but I hate getting them. I bet the Tribeca gets one right on the crease.... I'll be pissed.

So far we've been lucky with the B9, my Forester was not as lucky. I'm fortunate to have a good paintless dent removal guy locally:

He really can work wonders, but getting something on a crease is really tough for those guys to work on.
