Re: Staples in the fender flares?

Here is a wild ass guess.

The moldings are painted before being installed on the vehicle.

They staple them to a form while they are being painted.

So, the staples get painted.

They leave the painted staples in place to avoid having to touch up the moldings.

Re: Staples in the fender flares?

I'm not even going to go staple hunting on my Overland. Ignorance is bliss.

I think I have to agree with you on this. I can't possibly see another reason for the staples.

How would that explain those of us with flare staples that are not painted?

Wild ass guesses do not come with explanations. That's what makes them wild ass guesses.

I think you meant glasses Bill...as in you didn't wear any when you read some of the posts on this subject.



My pictures clearly show no paint on the staples...just rust.

Re: Staples in the fender flares?

That's one reason to buy a Summit. We don't have flares or staples. We got upgraded to plastic side panels held by double sided tape
