Subject: Fender Flare 3M Tape
IP: Logged

Message:
I got a 2000 Dodge Dakota and my front fender flare has began to seperate from the body leaving a pretty large gap that bothers me everytime I see it.

Anyways I was thinking about taking it off, removing the old tape from both the body and flare. Cleaning the area and then applying new tape and putting the flare back on.

I was wonder if anyone had any tips on doing this and I have heard that it uses 3M double-sided tape and was looking it up and came across this 3M TAPE on there web site. It looks like the right stuff, any tips or advice?

Thanks

You seem to know way more than most already. That's the tape. Most commercial body shop suppliers carry it. So does NAPA.

The only advice I have is when you reinstall the flare, put the tape on the flare where it came from the factory and just pull about an inch of the backing from either end and hold the flare in place while you have a buddy grab both free ends of the backing. It's easier to manage that way since you most likely don't have 4 arms.

It's tempting to use tape all around the flare but if you do you'll trap water in there and in a few years your truck will rust through just like Toyotas do.

Then install the screws that hold the inner edge of the flare in place.

Oh yeah, clean the lip of the whel well really well. Use lacquer thinner. But you prolly knew that already (kinda obvious ;) )

That tape is activated by pressure. Be sure to press it real well when you install.
