Hey guys,

I am new to this forum and i am considering removing the black rubber moulds that go along the side of the wagon, I am unsure as to whether i should have them painted white or just leave them off! Is there any legalities in QLD with removing them? I wont be removing the front and rear bumper ones- just the two side doors. Is it at all possible for someone to throw up some photoshop pics of how it would look painted white as well as just having the side ones removed.

Thanks guys

if you dont want the black stripe id remove them and leave them off. i think they look gay when they have been painted.

pretty easy to remove,

heat with hairdryer
run some thin fishing line between the black stripe and the door. holding either end of fishing line, GENTLY use a sawing motion, up and down until you cut through all the tape that holds them on and then use some OOMPH glue remover to remove the residue left by the tape.

pretty sure there is no legalities to do with removing said stripes.

i went searching the wreckers today but had no luck with the white side trims- may have to source them as a Replacement part :( but i did pick up a new dash plastic that i am going to paint white and install this weekend coming.
