    The rear corners where it rounds under the tail lites is bolted on. The rest is stuck on w/ 2 sided tape. The tape is about 1/2 in wide. You should be able to find the mldg at Discount Autozone Pep Boys ETC.

    When it comes off it may take some paint w/ it. It did on mine and most 80s GM trucks I have pulled them off of have also taken paint. Remember that these rigs had problem paint to begin with. I just took a look at my pics and it doesnt show up well. The spots that pulled were rather small. My roof on the other hand is coming off in sheets! LOL! What does show up in my pics is whats left of the adhesive on the sides. The adhesive stripes look bad but they look better than the mldgs did.
