Please tape down any loose trim or moldings, especially if
it is loose on the leading edge (towards the front). Always
keep duct tape at your console.
We lost a customer forever over a piece of this trim. Here’s how it
happened. Because the attendant didn’t inspect this vehicle closely,
a piece of this trim came off in the wash. That piece was crushed by
the next vehicle that passed. After I inspected the vehicle I told the
customer I was not going to replace the piece. He had scratches down all
the sides (had been out in the woods a bunch). He had several of the parts that
were only partial adhered (like the piece in the pic). The silicone evident in the
pic shows that someone had been trying to fix a previously existing problem. Silicon
is not a factory method of attachment. Besides all that, the trim was no longer available
from the Toyota dealer and would have been a $1,200 complete kit if it was.
Anyway it got very ugly and took a lot of my time and the customer’s to no avail. All of
which could have been avoided if our attendant had found the loose parts before the wash
and taped/warned them.
