I am not saying it will, but be careful on using epoxy or glues on composites/plastics of unknown makeup or even known makeup, even seen it on adhesive bonded metal. I have seen where ever the epoxy sits ends up showing through on the paint side because of chemical reactions...almost ghosting.
Its been 4 months since I installed mine. No chemical reaction at all. I agree with Mr Chaiman, the thickness of the fender alone would prevent this, if it even were to happen.

Try leaving the foam stripes off. I didn't install them on mine and I haven't had any debris in the rocker channel.

This looks like a nice fit Earl. Where is the attachment, if not using the rubber?

2016 Shelby GT350, 2017 Ford Focus ST, On Order 2020 CTFP Shelby GT 500 with POTTS. Car is released and awaiting shipment. I am running out of time before having to leave for Japan on July 29th.
What does passing arrival mean on the tracker? Car is still showing about 100 miles from the city it needs to arrive to by rail.

D: It means the car is passing a railroad-mandated reporting point, you can usually find it on Google Earth.

"Arrived Rail" is the one you're looking for.
It passed Enid Ok 3 days ago which is only about 100 miles from OKC where it needs to arrive. It seems like it is either just sitting or being pulled by mules the last bit of the way to torture me. Only 5 days left until......well you know already. :(

The dreaded NCODS! DAMN IT! :-)

Those trains move pretty slowly I discovered, D. I think mine averaged less than 30mph for the trip. She's GOTTA be close..didja check that last passing arrival point on Google Earth?

Yes I checked on google earth. It is ridiculously close but either stopped and sitting or moving at a crawl. How many days does it take to go 100 miles?

Passing arrival means that your railcar has passed a railyard. There are arrival tracks that enter the railyard and departure tracks that leave railyards.

Here is a picture of the automotive railyard in Mira Loma, CA
