    Same as the badges mate. What m1lhous said isn't true, its the other way around, then paint under the strip is the original colour, whereas the rest of the car will be faded. A quick polish will sort it out though...

    disagree..

    use a kettle full of boiling water per strip and peel the rub strip back on the corner, get your index finger behind the strip and slowly drag it along the strip.

    all the glue will stick to the strip and not the door
