Basicly, but you have to be more careful with the side moldings or else you'll have a long streak of scratches

HAHA lol i find this funny, because yesterday i took my side moldings off. WEird, but yeah i took em off cause they were discolored and made it look like i had a white stripe across my car. And yeah same method as debadging. When i did mine i used the fishing line to take it off, then the left over goo was sitting in the sun on an 80 degree day. Didnt even need goo gone, i rolled it right off with my finger, scrubed it a little and applied some wax, and now it looks ****in sexy.
