tom34diy said:Thanks for the links. Since I bought an EX today, I guess I will go ahead and order the splash guards and side molding from Bernardi. The dealer price for those two items was about $75 more than ordering online. Thanks again.
Can you post a picture?tom34diy said:Well...I got the body side molding installed, which was pretty simple. And, since the molding seemed to be positioned so low on the van (using Honda's template), I raised ours (before sticking it on, of course) about three inches to get the most protection. Maybe it will keep our doors safe for all of those irresponsible people out there who can't control their doors.
tom34diy said:I guess some just put molding on for looks. Regardless of where it goes, I think the Odyssey looks better with the molding.
I think the problem with the molding higher up is that it gets too close to the door handles, which from the pictures looks like they are on slightly different angle than the molding.tom34diy said:Thanks, mic111.
So, two votes for lower, like Honda designed it, huh? But, is there any reason to put it on at all, if it is too low to protect? Honda has historically done that with cars like the Accord. I guess some just put molding on for looks. Regardless of where it goes, I think the Odyssey looks better with the molding.
