look at this body...

I had to get ya'll to look to answer my boring question, SORRY! I have a 2 tone, black top and gold bottom F250 w/ the gold molding just below where the paint color changes, this molding is, well it is MOLDED or something discolored, and I can't get it clean. Has anyone else had this problem, and what did you do? Has anyone removed this molding, and if so how is the best way to go about it? Thanks fellas.

a heat gun... some fishing line... some goo gone and a little elbow grease should take the molding off. taking the molding off will clean up the look of the side of your truck a little bit too

Actually started today, got the drivers side pretty good so far, will try and finish up tomorrow, and once I get it all cleaned up will get some pics on here, I highly recommend it from my results thus far, thanks so much for the tip, finally got some good weather and a little time, even if your molding isn't discolored I would do it though, looks much better, thanks again

I have got a 2005 that is also black with the gold along the bottom. My moulding was black and was above where the color changes. I removed mine when I first got the truck and I think it looks alot better and cleaner.

To remove mine I just used a heat gun and pulled the moulding off. Moving the heat gun along as I went and didnt leave the heat gun in one spot for more than a couple seconds. The moulding actually peeled off really easy but left this sort of foam adhesive strip that was holding the moulding to the body. Then I used a pinstripe removal wheel like this(3M Pinstripe Removal Wheel - ZZ3000) that you can put in a drill. The wheel had no problem removing the foam adhesive and didnt leave any marking on the paint.

Only problem I had while doing this is the pinstripe removal wheel is actually very good at removing pinstriping...who knew. My truck has pinstriping where the color changes from black to gold and I got a little close and took off a chunk of the pinstriping. Luckily a buddy owns a body shop and got me a replacement peice for nothing.

Heres some pics.

You can see in this one where I was missing the pinstriping before I replaced it
