If I'm thinking straight they are chrome and look like a U channel.You lightly tap them on with a rubber mallet ,its just friction that holds them on..If your trying to use the old ones they might need to be squeezed together a little so they have a tight fit.When I install them I always start at a body line where the edging has a bend....but if the doors are too thick with bondo they wont fit anyway, most of us dont use them

You might have to open them in spots and close them up a little in others,they should be a pretty snug fit.
