Do you have a link to the place that sells the body side moldings. I couldn't make the link in your last post work. Thanks!

www.sportwing.com has exact fit bodyside moulding for the TSX but doesn't list it on their website for some reason. You'll have to call them and order by phone. I got mine that way and it is an exact fit for my '05 TSX in the correct carbon grey pearl. Some people use mouldings intended for the TL. They apparently fit, but the colors don't match.

The Sportwing part number is FE-TSX-NH658P. I don't know is any part of that number refers to the paint code. This is something they will ask for. The following link is a picture of my '05 TSX with the mouldings installed. I did the installation myself. Not hard, but it takes a little planning. The moudings cost $139.

It looks very nice, are they painted to match the color ( is Red available?) Can you give some more info about installation ?

How long did it take? What kind of planning?

Based on my conversation with the order desk, I seems that Sportwing paints the mouldings in house as part of the custom mfg. process so you should be able to get them in any TSX color. They're are painted and made up only after the order is received. As for the installation, it takes a little planning because the flat doors of the TSX have no embossed creases to make it easy to align the mouldings. I tried several trial fittings using black electrical tape to mock-up the look of the installed mouldings. After getting the placement to my satisfaction, applying the mouldings was relatively easy, just peeling off the backing and affixing them. Caution, make sure you have them positioned exactly, because once the adhesive touches the car, that's pretty much it. No repositioning is possible.

I just wanted to thank you for this information...recently bought a 2006 TSX and I'm very concerned about side body dings. Were you provided a template with the moldings?
Thanks in advance for an early reply and Happy Holidays!
