Now is the best time to give your Acura RDX a stylish new look by installing some new pillar tints. With our Rvinyl™ Pillar Trim Kit, adding tints has never been easier. The best part is that you wonâ€™t have to empty your wallet since our prices are affordable and installation is a cakewalk. To make it even easier, we will show you how to install so you get the look you want as soon as possible!
Head to Rvinyl.com and click on the Auto tab and then choose Pillar Trim tab. Now, select the Acura RDX which will take you to the next page. Here, you will select the product options and a pop up should open. You will be able to select what color and trim you want for your ride.
There are a lot of colors and styles to choose from so youâ€™ll be able to get what matches you ride the best. You can also add tools such as a Squeegee, application fluid and a Seal-It Pen to make the installation process easier. We also offer a lifetime warranty for the precut trim. Once you are done, you can check out and the items will be shipped to you as soon as possible.
Once your kit arrives, have your tools close to you for easy access. Before you start applying the pillar trim, clean the pillar of the Acura RDX. Spray Rapid Prep Cleaner and wipe down the pillar and the area outside with the Rapid Prep Cleaner and a towel. Thoroughly clean and wipe away any dirt. Spray the cleaner again and wipe down again to make sure it is clean.
If your Acura RDX has any scratches or wear and tear, then we have good news because you can get rid of those scratches just like that. Apply a coating of 3m Primer 94 to the surface of the pillars. Apply it evenly and wait five minutes so it dries up.
Do not remove the adhesive liner on the pillar trim. It is there to help keep the pillar trim nice and clean. You donâ€™t want to ruin the adhesive by letting your fingers come in contact with the adhesive side or you wonâ€™t be able to perfectly align since it may get damaged. When using the squeegee, make sure to use the buffer side so the pillar trim doesnâ€™t get scratched.
Start off by placing 8 small pieces of masking tape next to you so you can grab them easily when you need them. Next, grab the film and align in to pillar with the adhesive still on. Move your hand to the middle of the film and grab two pieces of masking tape and attach them to the bottom so that it stays in place. Make sure the film is properly aligned. Use two pieces of masking tape and place them at the top, about one inch from the very top.
Pull the film back by holding the masking tape and never touching the film itself. Remove the adhesive tape one third of the way, fold it and reapply the masking tape on the top. Use the squeegee and lock the top of the film in place. Remove the masking tape from the top by pulling it low, flat and away from the film.
Now you can remove the liner by grabbing the masking tape that is on the bottom. Lift the film and remove it slowly. Make sure the film is perfectly aligned when you do this. Once you have reached the bottom, use the squeegee starting from the top and going to the bottom. Hold the squeegee on the bottom part of the film as you remove the tap. Make sure the edges are sealed by running your finger on the edges of the film.
There isnâ€™t one perfect way to install the pillar trims. Instead, there are numerous methods and we have included some of them so you can find the one best suited for you. Cut the liner with a knife or a scissor instead of folding it in the beginning. This method helps the film align closer with the pillar than the folding method. When cutting the liner, hold the film to the side, which will give you a better angle to remove the liner.
Another installation method that works great is to tape the top and the bottom of the film to the pillar. Add a piece of tape to the middle. Now, remove the bottom tape and place it on the top. Remove the liner from the bottom towards the middle and cut it off. Now, squeegee the bottom section on. Remove the tap from the top and remove the liner. Squeegee the top part starting from the middle.
You have finished installing your Acura RDX pillar tints and they look stunning. You donâ€™t need to use any heat because it was already sealed during installation. You can always make installation this easy by choosing Rvinyl™. All for a price and convenience that you wonâ€™t get from anywhere else!
