JDM Hand Steps anyone?
If you're not familiar, these are a super rare Mazda option in Japan - long since discontinued. We decided to take a shot at them, because, well, WE wanted a set!
The OEM hand steps from Mazda are a cut and finished piece of rubberish material, attached using a couple strips of body molding tape.
Our version is cut from waterproof neoprene and we stitch the edge to give it a nice finished look. Attachment is handled with full release 3M adhesive applied to the underside.
These help out by giving you a nice place to plant your hand when exiting the vehicle, since many of us owners have a habit of 'rolling' out of our cars instead of exiting gracefully. =)
The hand steps themselves are black and stitching is available in both black and red to give people the option of matching interior / floor mats.
The fitment is perfect and these look really good in my door jabs.
JDM FD Hand Steps
Got the hand steps mounted on the car and they were exactly as expected. Obviously the key to them will be how they hold up long term (fabric and adhesive) but they look good so far and had no issues with them pulling off as I open and close the door. Glad to have a company creating new (different) products for the platform.
Fast shipping and great communication. Product has an above average quality!
JDM Hand Steps - 5 Star!
The quality that Garage Alpha continues to put out is beyond me! I thought these would make a nice feature on my FD and right that is. The neoprene is stitched very nicely and is low profile for zero door interference. Couldn’t be happier!
Awesome product, looks great, fits great and a nice subtle mod
Super easy installation, great quality material and a functional piece! Great purchase
