Adding A Coloured Decorative Strip To The Wing Mirrors20th September 2019
Skoda have very kindly made it easy for adding a coloured decorative strip to the wing mirrors by designing a nice gap between the two halves.
In my quest to get my Yeti looking as buff and as unique as I possibly can without it ever looking tacky, this little job should fit nicely amongst my many other customisations (I hope). 🙏
First thing to do is to find the plastic strip that I need. It must be for outside use. And be no more than half an inch wide.
A search of Amazon brings up the plastic strip I’m looking for, and in many different colours.
I decide on the blue, which appears to be close to the blue that I recently applied to my brake callipers
It arrives fast.
Decorative strip is here on Amazon if you want it too.
I appreciate the seller throwing in a plastic spatula – I won’t need it though, the strip fits perfectly 🙂
So now I’ll cut an exact length of the decorative strip that I need…
Let’s loosely attach it and see what is what…
Okay so I was wrong… the plastic spatula from the seller IS required to assist in tucking the strip underneath one of the lips. 😗
Not a bad idea, wizard, I will do that. Thanks.
I remove the strip and do as the wizard says and add a few dollops of Superglue here and there along the bottom edge of the strip.
But I don’t have time to faff around because of the glue 😨
I’m satisfied with how it looks, so I dart around to the other side and repeat the process on my passenger mirror. And…
Good times. 😎
Feel free to stay tuned for more modifications I have planned.

And I am always interested to hear about your Yeti, whether customised or not.
