I just bought an 85 K5 Silverado. It has I think, original checkered plate running boards fitted. I want to remove them but have a few questions..Maybe someone who has taken them off before can help me out. How easy are they to remove? What was the condition of the paint below? My paint on the whole truck is in excellent condition, I don't really want to have to spray along the bottoms of the doors etc if removing the running boards leaves the paint behind them in bad condition. Any help/tips or advice would be gratefully appreciated... Thanks guys.
