Question removing door ding strips

Anybody know how to remove the plastic strips on the side of the truck? I guess they are there to protect against door dings? Mine are starting to turn colors and i want them off. Any suggestions would help a bunch.

Heat gun, eraser wheel, goo gone, and some sort of buffing compound of wax to clean it up at the end.

You really don't need the heat gun if its hot outside. It still makes it easier though.

You can try a steamer also, that was the only way I got the 3m tape off when I removed the window vent shades. Also someone else posted on here that when they removed those guards of their doors, the paint was bubbled underneath. That is why I am nervous about removing mine.

im afraid of that too but mine are starting to turn a red color and its driving me nuts. Gray paint and red door ding strips dont go well together. I got a guy here in town that does custom paint he said he would do it for around 100 bucks. I might go that route so if the paints bubbled he can fix it right there.

Haven't had time to do it yet. We are getting ready for wheat harvest out here so spare time is a luxury.
