    i doubt the paint will come off on these new cars, there is the clear coat so that would mostly protect it

    It should be gone yesterday! Also I think you should paint the black strip along the bottom of your car white.

    should go for sure. get 'em painted of get rid of them. Looks a lot sporty without the moulds. Bit of a drama to get rid of the glue. I took mine to a panel beater (I can give the address if you are in Sydney) and he got most of it off with a blade and used a little grinder with a rubber wheel to remove the rest.

    Yeah i really wana get my black strip off too, can someone give me an idea how to go about it, cos i tried takin off the black strip under the blinker at the front, and i got to the groove where the black stuff is, and it looked like it was gona bring paint off.
    Do those heat guns you get help or do they damage the paint?
