    Any secret process to put these on? The "pins" (whatever the hell they're called) just won't go in the holes. I worked on both doors for 2.5 hours. The only thing I accomplished are sore fingertips. Help!

    I'm entering into this very same thing on my car. What I've dealt with in the past is paint in the holes on a fresh painted car. I used a very small round file to clean the holes. Also a pair of long needle nosed pliers to help pull the pins inside the door.

    A small dab of silicone plumbers grease in the hole and on the arrow head may help a bit.

    My doors were just painted. I'll have to try all suggestions.

    Thanks. That's not really indicative of the color. The car will be a Baldwin Motion. It'll have black stripes. The painter mixed in some green and red (I don't know what that means) but it caused the color to literally jump out at you.
