Retro '69 Quarter Panel Moldings Install

Installed RetroUSA's '69 style Quarter Panel Moldings (aka Gill Louvers) - easy install took 20 minutes including cleaning area before applying moldings which come with 3M tape attached.

Great quality though pricey but they are true to the '69 style I was looking for...

They stick out perhaps 1/4 or maybe 1/3 inch at most - they fit into the raised portion of the gill and leave the indented portion visible. The 3M tape on the product immediately adhered and I intend to let them "cure" for a few days (eg no driving in rain or hand washing the car which I did before install)

Updated with pictures - you'll see they don't stick out much at all.
