    they are held in place with clips - they just slide off..

    but the clips once removed leave holes - therefore the reason why most ppl colour code (if standard black ones fitted) - obviously you could smoothe them but it may cost a bit.

    Starting from the front of the door - tap the front of the bumpstrip with a small block of wood or similar and it'll nudge about an inch or so... now carefully slide it backwards towards the rear of the car until it comes off the clips ..

    The same goes for the rear 1/4 panel strip but in this case it slides off from back to front.

    I think a coupe without door mouldings would look very naked indeed.

    Agreed Mate! I think the Door and 3/4 Panel would be very weak then aswell and prone to dinting easier with car park idiots who open their doors without thinking!
    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED
