Their website is: http://shop.automotiva.co.uk/

I suggest email them and say you have an Antara, which you understand the Chevrolet Cruze protectors will fit. Price is listed at 36.50.

My earlier post shows them in close up where the doors meet.

Certainly looks Good Dulac, only thing I wonder about is how high do they stand proud of the door skin. I checked the posts on the other thread https://www.antaraownersclub.com/foru..._page9.htmlbut can't see it.

The supplier's drawing shows them at around 11.5 mm thick, reduced at the shaped end on the rear door. The plastic is quite hard and it is suggested they are installed in warm weather, or use a hairdryer to raise the door temperature before application.

Yes just the job
But I think the warming up should be the moulding to make it a bit more pliable not the door.
Think this is the right look giving good protection
Yep that's mine ordered

I think the door has to be warm to help the adhesive once the protective backing tapes have been removed. I did mine on a warm day so there was no problem. Do a dry run first to make sure the ends don't snag when the doors are opened and use bits of masking tape as markers for setting-out.

Yes good call Dulac on masking tape at least I can jiggle the tape to suit before final fix
