So a lot of accessories i have seen on KoreanAutoImports like the chrome eyeliner and the exterior chrome moulding kit use 3M adhesive tape to stick to the vehicle.

Has anyone ever used this type of application before? What happens if you do not like the look of what you add OR mess up while applying it (put it on crooked by accident)? Can you remove this stuff fairly easily?

Anyone with experience please comment!

no pun intended, but if you mess up you're pretty much stuck. 3M tape is what manufacturers use to apply things like the bagdes to the exterior to the car and if you've ever tried to debadge you're car then you know how hard it is to take off

yeah its a pian but it can be removed the main thing to remember is a hair dryer or a heat gun on low

heat up the adhesive and it can be removed fairly easily you can also put some electrical tape on the end of a putty knife to protect the paint from scratches and use the putty knife to pry up the piece

also use some denatured alcohol to clean the surface before applying the 3m tape and if you do really mess up you can buy the 3m tape at any local parts house and try again
