    I'm pulling mine when I respray it this winter. The moldings don't do much anyway, seeing as most car doors hit a foot higher than the moulding.

    Hhmmmm chip the paint.... On my 2000 after the door moldings were removed someone hit my passenger door and cracked the fiberglass pretty good. The door was hit right on the ridge where the molding use to be and it made about a half inch hole and cracked the fiberglass pretty bad for about 5-6 inches. My 99 still has the moldings and the doors are perfect.

    I just waited until it was hot out....and peeled them off. Not much work.

    Cleaning the left over adhesive off can be a bitch. Had a blister on my thumb for a few days.

    Heat gun and fishing line- just don't go overboard with the heat and screw up the paint, or worse yet, the door panel! Heat it up and then use the fishing line like floss and cut all the way down. It's how we used to remove emblems at the body shop so we could reuse them when the appraisers wouldn't pay for new ones!
