Talking Plain Jane 01 LT

I have been wanting to take off the stupid trim pieces that go on the lower parts of the doors. I have a 01 Blazer Lt that is white. Can anyone post up before/after pics of their cars with and without the trim? Also what is the best way of taking off the foam sticky stuff underneath it?

I want it to look similar to the first picture. The second is what is looks like. Are they're any holes that will be exposed when I remove this stuff? or will it be as simple as ripping it off the side of the car?

I jsut took off mine and it is starting to look great with them off. I pried off the trim pieces with a flat head screwdriver(prying up a corner) and used WD40/ Break cleaner and some rubbing compound to get off the sticky residue.

They look great nekid

regards

I got it off easily, but the residue is being ridiculous. I have tried brake cleaner and wd40 and no good. Next I'll try goo gone then lighter fluid. It is a huge pain though.

Eric, I just did mine last week. If you are still working on it, use a blow dryer... It heats up the glue and makes it really easy to just peel the residue off.

Also, check out my build thread, "Inspired Blazer" if you want to see the before and afters.

Try 3m adhesive remover. Also, eraser wheel works great in removing the most stubborn glue residue.
