Are you refering to the door mouldings (bump strips on the doors)?

They are usually just held on with doublesided tape. Starting at one end carefully peel them off. Then remove any traces of glue from the door with either, Presol, Eucalyptus oil, lemon essence, or metho.

Eucalyptus oil gets them off, or just try running hot water over them and peeling them off.

If you use hot water make sure it isnt too hot or you will damage the paint...
I used a citris based cleaner that got it and the gunk behind off no problems...

I have a Futura Classic but it is the same thing... As I was peeling it off, I rubbed the citrus stuff into the point where the sticker was touching the panel.
The gunk left over came off pretty quickly with the citrus cleaner as well. :)

Citrus cleaner or Eucalyptus oil will work fine, should get all the left over glue off
