I have an '02 TB and am in the process of demolding it. I have currently only removed the rear passenger mold. I now have the problem of removing the lines that appaer after removing the adhesive. I have washed it scrubbed it and put some elbow grease to it. They are still there. They don't seem to be scratches as they have lightened up a bit. If anyone has any answers please help!

your door was repainted...when they repainted the door they didnt take the moldings off they just taped around it. I have the same thing. My friends dad owns a body shop and he told me we would have to sand it out and re-clear the door

:no: All 4 of my doors had lines just like those. They'll come off with a little buffing.

Nope, I'm the only owner of mine and never had it painted. I love the green color of it. I was finally able to get the lines buffed and polished out. Here are the results. I also debadged it and it looks great now.

must be dangerous in texas with the bears sign on the back after they beat the cowboys...
Gosh, I hear it all the time when I stop for gas or at a stop light. I am a true Bears fan though.

I'm not too sure what a lower rocker is. Are you talking about the grey thing that is just below the doors and runs from wheel to wheel? If so, I actually like the look ( other than the wax that I got on the driver side) and wouldn't want to paint it the same color as the truck. If I painted those I'd have to paint the grey stuff on the bumper too and I don't think it would look good :m2:

Keep us updated and post the results. I just went outside and removed the cross members of the luggage rack. As soon as I get some plugs, I will remove the rest of the rack too!

I like that look, my mom has an ss and with the oversize rims lower suspension and no roof rack it really looks aggressive. check out Viual Perfecti he just did something with some caps and paint and took his rack off it looks good
