Removing Body Moldings

Has anyone ever removed the body moldings on the doors of there truck?? I have thought about doing this along with painting my door handles red. I'm just not sure if it would look right or not. Any pics or comments on this would help. Thanks Tyler

when I had my 96 Dodge re-done, we left EVERYTHING off....no badges, no lettering, no black body moulding, nothing.......looks clean as a whistle. Gonna paint a few more things white on it still.......

Just take Fishing line and double it, cut the molding off and use a blow dryer to get the rest of the glue off and the painted door handles look good i did mine along with the tailgate handle and factory wiper cowl!

Thanks for the input I'm not sure if the paint will be faded underneath the body moldings, but there is only one way to find out.:thanks:

That far down on the door it would have to be almost 15yrs old to fade unless you live where there is a lot of salt water or hot hot summers!! probablynothing a clay bar and some elbow grease wont take care [email protected]!

you can use an old credit card too... a little help would be to spray a little soapy water on it too, it helps avoid scratches. as far as painting the handles, you can use regular automotive paint, and at your local paint shop they should have a product called bully dog, it is a addhetion promotor, it just helps the paint stick to plastic. It comes in a spray can like spray paint. outside of that, just wash em good...
