Re: A Arm Covers
OER is cut correctly, but the material is too thin. They flop around when driving resulting in tearing through the staples.
I bought a set of these from OER and installed them on my inner fenders before the inner fenders were installed on the car. I didn't know at the time that there was better, more correct pieces out there. Like Keith said, the OER pieces are very thin rubber with no reinforcing strings. I didn't even have to drive my car to vibrate them loose. They started to disintegrate around the staples and fall off the car in pieces without the car ever been driven 10 feet. I bought another set from Metro and they were the heavy, string reinforced rubber.
To make the change, removing the approximately 30 staples without damaging the surrounding paint was not fun. Installing the new pieces with the inner fenders in the car was alot harder than when they are out of the car. It's not a job want to do twice if you don't have to.
