Re: availability-- New GC Lettering

What did you use for measurements for placement? How far down from the body line and how far away from the door jam?

I got my lettering a week ago and I am waiting for the weather to warm up a bit before I mess with it.

Yup, just to keep my line even. The most time consuming part is getting the sticky tape off and cleaning it up.

Re: availability-- New GC Lettering

I have the X package 2013 GC and was wondering if the chrome door guards come off?

They do! They are just held on with double sided tape. You can use some fishing line to peel them off, then just remove the left over stickies by hand.

Thumbs up Re: availability-- New GC Lettering

Got mine on, the chrome strips were tougher to remove than I thought they would be. Then lots of rubbing to get all the sticky tape off followed by a wipe with wd40 to remove any residue. I cleaned everything up with an alcohol based cleaner followed by a fresh water rinse.

Absolutely positively like the look much better than the big chrome strips. 100% satisfied.

It does make a big difference in appearance with the strips gone.
Once I made the change, there's no going back. It's funny how the chrome strips are not on the new 2014's.
