Frequently Asked Questions:
How are Quick Covers installed?
Quick Covers are installed with a combination of automotive-grade adhesive tape and fasteners.
What are Quick Covers made out of?
Quick Covers are formed from a very durable thermoplastic. Similar to the material used on OEM wheel flares and moldings.
Can I install them myself?
Yes. Quick Covers can be installed easily, but professional installation is strongly recommended.
Do Quick Covers come painted?
No. Quick Covers are delivered in raw plastic form at this time.
Is professional painting required?
No. However, because Quick Covers are delivered in raw plastic form, they must be primed with a very specific product. Use of any other primer will result in adhesion issues resulting in paint cracks/peeling. For this reason, professional painting is strongly recommended.
Should Quick Covers be scuffed or sanded before being primed?
No. Quick Covers are intended to be coated with a specialty raw plastic primer, which is intended to be applied directly onto the smooth plastic surface. It offers excellent adhesion and flex properties.
What primer should be used on Quick Covers products?
Quick Covers are delivered in raw plastic form, so a raw plastic-compatible primer must be used. We recommend Polyvance Bumper & Cladding Coat – Adhesion Primer. Part No. 3611-1
What should be used as a rust inhibitor?
We recommend brushing a high-viscosity grease on any areas that can be reached by hand. For hard-to-reach areas (i.e. inside of rocker panels and cab corners) we recommend using the aerosol rust inhibitor Like90.
Is there a wholesale discount?
Yes. Available to body shops, dealerships and other businesses interested in reselling, Quick Covers are sold at a discount. When filling out the order request form, please specify that you are a business and we will contact you in regards to available discounts before your order is processed.
