I finally decide to remove the side door molding. It took me about a year to decide. I was worried about getting dings, but I notice its not even around that area and I try to look for stalls that are big. I do like it better without the side moldings. I was lucky, it was easy to remove and there were lines but once I kept waxing and polishing it, it started to come off. I like it with the moldings on as well but I just like it more without it.

Thanks guys! I didn't know it would make that much of a difference. It will be easier to polish! I know the srt don't have the side moldings also.
Congrats! While the underlying paint condition always makes people hesitate about doing this, I think removing those moldings gives the car a great new look at everyone's favorite price...$0

I like it and have wanted to do this. But, I'm hesitant on removing mine for 2 reasons, 1. With some of my luck pulling off the molding would mess the paint job up and I would be swearing up a storm and 2. The minute I do that someone will probably ding my door in a parking lot where the molding used to be on the car. So as much as I like the look of this and would love to do this, I'm going to keep mine on.
I know what you mean, It took me one year to decide to do it but I just took the plunge and did it..LoL..
I agree it looks alot better. I've always like them without molding.
I couldn't believe how much dirt was under mine when I removed ours. It was only 1yr old. I also saw an older car in our parking lot at work that had big rust spots surrounding the molding and that made me feel much better about removing ours.

Looks fantastic. Congrats. You have more guts than I (door dings). Maybe one day I'll man-up and get out the fishing line.
