Cars are not merely motor-driven vehicles, but often small works of art on which designers took pains to improve its appearance. One basic element of a car's look is the ornamental trim strip, widely established in car manufacturing. The protective function is ever so relevant for manufacturers as the trim strip on the side of the car ensures a certain collision protection preventing minor paintwork damage. And of course it has an important esthetical function.
The trim strip divides the large surface on the side of the car horizontally and upgrades the appearance. There are many opinions on which material looks best. On many cars a complete black trim strip is used. Trim strips with a silvery shine are popular too. Damage to trim strips occurs almost exclusively through accidents, though theoretically vandalism must be taken into account as well. In general, vandals are focused primarily on the bodywork lacquering rather than on the relatively inconspicuous trim strip. With a view to replacement, car mechanics should know exactly whether the strip was glued or attached in some other way.
