How do you get the side molding/stripping off?

Discussion in '1973-1991 K5 Blazer | Truck | Suburban' started by **DONOTDELETE**, Jul 9, 2002.

    I was just going to start pulling the crome side stripping off when I fuond that it's pretty well held on there. Also there is these clips that seem to hold it on pretty well. Does this stuff slide off, or just pry it off? Thanks

    I got some of it off the first time I removed my top by myself. I got some more off the first time I went wheelin'. Then I pulled off the rest with a pair of thick leather gloves.

    Some of it is just glued on, some is screwed on with an easily accessible screw and some is a pain in the butt to get those little mounting tabs off. I just ripped it off of those and then I took a grinder to those nasty tabs, then I found out they have nut on the back of them that may or may not be accessible.

    The trim on the doors and the tailgate is just glued on. The trim on the fenders and quarters is glued and has one little clip thingy at end of that particular strip. I just got mean with it and ripped it all off with my hands! /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif
