Default Self Adhisive Trim Removal

Hi all,
Fisrt time poster here. I had put one of those self adhisive grill kits on my 05 when it was new and now its time to put on another ( neighborhood kid pealed all the chrome covering off!!) any tips on removing the old one? I was told heating it carefully with a hair dryer works well if you take your time....any thoughts?? Thanks,

Larry

Welcome to the forum.

Yep, the hair dryer thing works well if you take your time. You should be able to peel the strips right off. You can also use a strong fishing line to get in back of the strips and go back and forth cutting away the strip from the adhesion material. There will be some left-over sticky stuff which you can take off using something like "Goo Gone" or other adhesion strippers from your local hardware store.

Thanks folks! I also installed the "portholes" at the same time. Had them on my 56 Buick Roadmaster and always had kind of a soft spot for them.

I'm considering the portholes for mine. As in, I may run over to a local store that stocks them today.

And install them today.

Instead of working.
