Thanks for putting this together!
Genuine Alfa Romeo W/Strip Cowl Screen To Hood Inner P
That works too. i noticed that once I get one side done, while keeping the center velcrode , it was easier to move the Velcro a bit to recenter As there is room to play in the center While at the edges, the grommet has to be perfect in the hole or the edge will not sit well…….again, either way will work as long as you gauge while installing if you need to stretch a bit more or less The trim. The critical part is keeping the rubber perfectly seating against the plastic cowl lip/edge To cover all the white edge. Surprisingly, the part is well made in size will fit perfectly compared to other flimsy pieces ( like the wheel wells…..those drive me nuts At the rear side markers )…Great write up! This is going to be very helpful for many people!
My recommendation for installing the new molding is to start on the center and move towards the edges, one side at the time. Reason being this, you will not stretch the seal enough if you start "glueing" the molding down from the side and then move your way to the other end. This will cause you "running out" of the molding by the time you get to the other end. Have seen this happen multiple times and done it once by myself lol.
Obviously @CCCC is technically inclined and he got it all done easily. Of course there are always 20 different ways of doing everything but I just wanted to share my thoughts in case a less technical/ handy person (like @lars for example) attempts this molding replacement. You certainly don't want to buy another molding for 140$ or how much ever the moldings cost now.
