Removed Side Moldings
1 Attachment(s)
Going off another thread about side moldings, I had them removed this morning! It was a really easy job my friend who owns a body shop used a clear liquid and they came right off! No damage to the paint of course... Now the other post had the letters on the side but I'm thinking about keeping it with out anything.... What do you think? All in all I think that it looks 100x better and soon I am going to put on the altitude grille and rear brow....thanks for the opinions!

Tints "check"
Side moldings "check"
Rear brow
Paint rims black

Re: Removed Side Moldings
Surprised to see you had someone else remove them when all you gotta do is peel them off. IMO you for sure have to put the letters on as the jeep looks extremely plain down there with nothing there. Sometimes I even think with the letters it still looks like something is missing. Either way I have mineral gray with the letters on the side and im very happy with it.

Re: Removed Side Moldings
My friend owns a body shop and really don't wanna take a chance to mess the paint up. Besides I'm not all that handy I am thinking about putting the letters on but they want like 67 dollars for each strip, that's 134 on plastic lettering.... I'm trying to find it cheaper and in past post I've seen it for like 27.... Still obserd for plastic but a lot better.... How much where ur letter and where did u get them from?

I'd leave it. I don't mind the moldings at all. But, if I stripped them, I'd leave it bare. Letters are a real paint to clean, polish, wax around, etc. Tar will get caught in them, etc.

google the part# and you'll find a place or two at the old price.
