Looks good! clean now!!! :)
Now i have to do the second side. Was a pain in the ass to get off the gunk. But i used the bottom soul of my flip flop and it took it off without a problem I know it sounds wierd but it worked.

Also after you take it off you might want to use a rubbing compound then a polishing compound that takes off light swirls. Made my paint shine son. THen after you do that wax the door for a even better shine

That's when you'll get someone parking next to your car, open their door and, "Bammm!", there's a nice dent in your door, along with chipped paint. :blink::nuts:
How many times does this happen? Seriously?
Its totally worth taking these off. EVERYONE should do it.
Looks maaad clean!

It happens a lot. That's why the strips are even there in the first place. Most people could give a flying rats rear about someone else's car and if they put a ding in someone's door, they could care less and they just go into the store to buy their junk food.

Don't un-think the engineering that went into the car. The strips are there for good reason.

This is why you do like me and park at the very opposite side everyone is parking.

not to be a jerk bro, but this site is mainly about people who want to mod their cars. so why do you come on here and tell everybody its a huge mistake to do so? i understand you been working on cars for a long time, but in all honesty your not the utmost authority. Plenty of ppl on here have no door strips and no dents.
end thread jack
looks good twizted. eventually i'll get around to doing mine too

God! Thank you! Jeez you put what I was thinking into words! Every post Ive read from this "John Adams" guy has been ALMOST exactly like what he is saying here. Dont get me wrong, dude is very knowledgeable, but man, dont come on here and bash everything we do or say. We do these things to our car because this is how we want OUR car.

Modding ftmfw!
