    a little detrimming

    i'm gonna be at some point removing most of the granny chrome trim along the bottom of the car. i just have to get a set of chrome rockers off a merc. my other plan was to remove the rubber door strips as mine is no longer really blue. its more of blue/grey/green anyone done that? if so got pics?

                The rubber door strips are a bitch to get the adhesive off. I used acetone and 3m's adhesive remover (that doesn't take off shit btw) and rubbed it forever and I still have some on my rear door cause I ran out of acetone.

                  I got my trim off. And i also got all the crap off too...that comes with a price though. It was so hard on it that it actually tore the factory paint down to the primer in some places. Not to mention rubbing through some places. If you do it, get a buffing wheel and some good FastWax because the rubbing will leave the surrounding paint dull.

                  Here is my before and after, I'm going to eventually play with blending in some touch up. Though new paint is on the menu as well.



                    I thought that rubber stip had clips on the back of it so you had to fill the holes in. Or did they change and its that way on my 91 but not the older cars.
