    There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply.
    The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey.

    Do you think a skinny self-adhesive strip like that will stay stuck?

    You can buy them at Auto Zone, O'Reilly, or Pepboys for $20 a roll. As far as door panels, however question is how you revove the old molding off the door panels.
    You can buy a roll of aluminum tape (Must be real aluminum material) cut with 6mm with with a streight edge in one motion. Before taping old moldings, you need to remove chrome molding completely. And then, sand it with 1500 grid paper after masking around the moldings.

    I'd probably ruin the door panel pulling the old moulding off. I think I would give the old chrome paint a try, on a day when my hands aren't shaking. The silver Sharpie did seem to work well on the heater panel tho!
