Beside moldings

So I bought this 7.3 for $5,000 and it needed a bed. I replaced it with a bed I found for $Beside moldings-imageuploadedbyag-free1356475185.586759.jpgBeside moldings-imageuploadedbyag-free1356475198.823856.jpgBeside moldings-imageuploadedbyag-free1356475210.277648.jpg300 but the molding doesnt line up. Is there a special technique too removing and reinstalling them?

Looks like the bed was repainted or moulding added afterward and not put in the correct spot

As for taking it off.
-Get it warm with a heat gun or hair dryer.
-then use some good fishing line or guitar string and "saw" it off.
-then use a 3m eraser wheel to get the glue off.
-Do NOT pull on the trim to remove it, it will never lay flat again.
-use some GOOD 3m double sided tape to put it back on

Ill try that and put up some photos. The bed came from a company work truck. So I don't know why they would spend the time to add the trim but who knows! Ill keep you updated. Fishing string here I come

i wonder if they matched the trim to the sagging cab bushings.... just odd, unless the whole truck was redone and the trim was put back lower

That's what I was thinking, I'm going to remove it all first and buff the paint then decide from there. I think it looks better anyway. The bed came from a 97 single cab and the truck is a 95 I wonder if the molding was different then...

Looks cheap. The moulding brakes up the otherwise plain looking truck
