I did this yesterday...WOW it takes FOREVER!!!

I thought wetting the sticky crap would make it easier but not at all...I picked at it with a plastic spoon for like an hour & half maybe 2 hours

Yeah, it took me quite a while too. Well worth all the work, though.

I'm with ya, man. I wasn't going to take them off, because I kinda like the way they look. But the dings on the left side of the car started peeling, so they are coming off this weekend. It's the only mod I can do right now as I had to replace the starter ( buh-bye suspension upgrade) and who knows what else is wrong as the car is still on the racks. Fun! Fun! Fun!


'95 GL White I've got mods.
