Nice! I like the change!
You will have to get me some measurements. Back door and rear quarter panel.

I was thinking the same thing about the meet. Three TVs isn't too rare for one parking lot, but three in a row, facing the same way, is either a meet, or hell freezing over. Lol.

And Jeff... :drool :hail:

Amazing work as always. That looks incredible!

Thanks guys!
I do have a lot of time in these to get the angle just right.
Here is a pic of mine in case someone hasn't seen it before.
It;s shade shifter vinyl. Changes color from green to purple.
Looks better in person!

that looks really nice. Im trying to think of a good color to go with my grey. I want to take off the plastic panels that run down the sides but not sure if their glued on or have holes in the body under them. did you take yours off or did it not have them?

The molding are held on with 3M 2 sided tape (the same stuff used for the badges). If you do a search for demolding or shaving the moldings you'll find all the info you need.

Perhaps when we get the TB guys taken care of we could try something like this for us Envoy guys?
I'm sure if I had an Envoy here close to measure and test fit I could do it.

Black would be a cool stealthy look.
I still have my side moldings on. Their color matched. Their just stuck on. Heat them up and pull them off.

For what it's worth, I just had to have some body work done (thank you Missouri winters... :duh: ) and the insurance company was giving like $40 to replace the front door molding, but since I've been wanting to remove them anyways, and my dad owns the body shop doing the work, I just had them all removed. I was really worried that with a nearly 9 year old truck, in bright red of all colors, there would be a good deal of fading which would cause brighter areas where those moldings were originally. Luckily, even on my '02 after removing them, there was no fading at all, so as long as it hasn't sat in direct sunlight for the last few years, you should be in business for removing them.

As for heating them up, I didn't want to risk causing the paint to bubble, or worse, deforming the moldings in the off chance that I ever wanted to put them back on, so what I did was use the same technique I use when 'shaving' emblems, which is taking fishing line and wrapping it around a dowel rod (or screwdriver, fingers :cry:, or anything else like that) on each end, and sort of flossing along the back of the emblem. If you're careful, it will cut through the 3M tape and allow the molding to just come right off without deforming it in any way. I then usually use my fingers to rub off the left over residue, but since the door skin is metal, I just took a pneumatic rubber wheel to it and it stripped the tape right off (not a good idea on plastic or rubber bumpers. I gouged my Audi's back bumper pretty severely by not exercising caution with a rubber wheel). Sorry for the really long post, but I hope my :m2: helps!

And as a final note, these trucks look SO SO SO much better without moldings. I went back and forth on doing it or not, but once I finally did, I don't know how I ever lived with them on there. The lines are SUPER clean without the moldings.

So does anyone know if High Voltage is still producing the hockey stripe kits for our trucks? I know this thread is old but I am new here and wondering if anyone still produces these. Thanks.
