    Once you get under at one end it was pretty easy.

    I started at the rear as it was easier to lift up, then slowly edged my fingers along under the strip and it gradually just popped off.

    Looks nice, will stand out less than the black even if it is the wrong colour

    Not trying to pick fault or anything but is it just the pic in the first roof strips one or could it do with another coat as it looks like white primer is showing through?

    For the 2 front doors place your hands firmly on them and push towards the back of the car, they will slide a few mm so you can get your fingers underneath them, then they just clip off.
    For the rear doors you need to open the front doors and then push the rear strips towards front of the car and then again prise off with fingers.
