no holes. I managed to just use my hands and some goo gone to remove the glue.
No real easy way either. your gonna use alot of force to get em off, your arms will hurt from scraping the glue off. Many will use fishing string, or blunt objects to get you started. A heat gun, or a sunny hot day will soften the glue.
Used nylon kite string instead of fishing line since it kept on breaking. Unfortunately I let my neighbor use my heat gun 12 days ago and still he has'nt brought it back. So been using a plastic putty knife and lighter fluid to remove adhesive. I am so sick of loaning tools out to family and neighbors and having to ask for them back. No more after today and will be calling in all debts. But any way, looks like I got a little body work that is needed that was under the molding.
Looks nice, I jsut did this on my 99 classic, I still need to get something to take the final residue off though, there is still a faint line from where the glue was. Aslo my clear coat is pealing around that area, but whatever, I think it looks better than with the trim.
I tried a heat gun came off in pieces instead of clean removal. Bought 3m adhesive cleaner and it helped but still lots of residue. Will be returning this can to see if I can get refund since it was expensive in my opinion. Auto part store was out of the eraser wheel. So ordered and should be here this week. Will post as I go.
So the eraser wheel makes quick work on a tedious job. Unfortunately my white paint got yellowed from the adhesive. Rubbing compound and numerous other products were use to no avail. I have taken off body molding in the past, but this has to be one the toughest jobs I have ever done.So i decided to do a little body work and then paint the body molding to match as close to the door handles and rock sliders as I could. Really dont think they will last very long only because the previous color was the factory paint white. Small nicks will show the color. But after 3 coats and sanding in between coats, I think the finish came out ok.
good call on the eraser wheel. i still dont get why people insist on using scrapers and chemicals and heat. when i removed my molding the eraser wheel made it a 30 minute job. but like you i had faded yellowish paint. so i painted the whole lower portion black.
Completely stock, and keeping it that way...
