Yeah the SRT has had that same carbon fiber trim now for a while. No change there.

Re: Fender flares unglueing on 2015 GC Summit

The syringe idea is great because you aren't peeling up the entire flare just the front section and it's hard to get stuff in there. I would go with Silvermax04's idea!!!
