    Looks good. I have thought about doing the same on our car. What did you use to remove the adhesive -- the 3M stuff?

    really i pulled the molding off by hand and worked the adhesive with my fingers/thumbs/hands to get it all off used alittle bit of tar and bug remover to get the small stuff off and to weaken the adhesive!

    Maybe its a TA thing. Camaro guys are all worried about being badged as a ss or a z.

    thats cause badges are the only thing to separate the looks of a z from a v6 car other than the exhaust

    looks much better. I don't have side moldings on either of my cars and would never put them back on.

    It looks nice. I like it. It really never bothered me so I never took the initiative to remove them from my car. Then again, I haven't done any appearance mods on my car to date other then the 35th LE grille.
