I have no idea what the actual name of those are, ik they're suposed to be like, door bumpers right?

Well anyway, I keep looking all over the sight, and I see how most of them have been removed.

I was wondering, does anyone know how to remove them?

Or at least tell me what they are called lol.

door guard strips

remove - Heat gun, (or hair dryer), and some goo gone/goof off/thinner.

Once removed it would be a good idea to buff the area out and wax it. Hell....just detail the car. LOL

North Alabama, right by Huntsville haha.

The warmer the weather, the easier it would be to take it off I'd imagine. Even easier, anyway.

As Eco said, anytime you remove trim there's a risk. If the car isn't that old (ie good paint), and they were applied the right way at the factory you should be okay.

Use some heat and dental floss or fishing line, in a sawing motion, to cut the adhesive behind them, then goo gone to remove the remaining residue. Wax, wax, wax. If there's an outline, I guess the worst that can happen is that you need to put them back on.

I think it looks better without door guards... especially considering most cars are raised higher and bang the top of our doors. Worth the risk.
