Painted Body Molding Removal???

Seems there are more people looking at this than the 6.0 Excursion feed.

I am wanting a different look on my excursion. I am wanting to do the all white look with smoked lights. However, I have an Eddie Bauer Excursion white with the beige trim. My question is, do I have to get the trim on the truck all painted white, or does it peel off or something? CUrious because it looks like it is stickied on there? Any ideas about this or has anyone done this? I believe some trucks had this as well.

The reason, is because I want to do an 05 to 07 conversion and I think it will look better all white with a new front end and smoked lenses.

I believe that the trim is on there with double sided trim tape. You should be able to heat the trim up with an heat gun and peel it off. The secret is to work slow and take your time. Some people have also had good luck running fishing line between the trim and the paint to "saw" throught the adhesive.

Either way, You will need to get a trim residue buffing wheel (rubber disc) to take off the residual adhesive.

Hmmmmmm....... so I would peel it off with heat gun and fishing line and then use a buffing wheel? I have never used one of those. They sell a trim residue wheel? is it like rubbing compound? and then what, wax it?

It is a rubber disc that attaches to a cordless drill and you run it on the residue and it flakes it off. Wax area after you complete it. I think they may sell them at Pep Boys or Advance Auto etc.

I use a razor blade to trim the tape off the molding and a eraser wheel you can get from a tool truck or auto paint supply shop. Watch the edge's of the doors you will burn through them fast.

If you are wanting to remove the one on the door there is no holes behind that decal but if you are reffering to the one on the quarter panel there is 2 holes behind that badge. They are holes for alignment of the badge. If you are just going to replace it with 05 badges then just stick it over it and you will be fine
