Fender Flares

Im wanting to remove my OEM flares, but I don’t know what’s under them. Has anyone done this before? Anything I should know before doing this? TIA

you can use dental floss, work your way back and forth with it to cut through the tape, then use a mild solvent to wipe it clean. when I say mild, really mild. Solvent will take the clear coat/paint off if not careful. You can use other stuff too to get the residue off, but I forgot the name, goof off?

All the above. Just tape holding them on. The paint is probably dirty as hell, so you'll need to really clean it and most likely there will be a line surrounding where they were because the paint would have faded over time as exposed to the sun vice the paint completely hidden.

And if they ever touched the paint, it could be worn into the clear, hopefully not the color though.

Use a hairdryer to heat them up, heat usually works wonders on any type of glue like that. '

And the best thing to remove any residue if it didn't just peel off after heating it, is one of those rubber eraser wheels. Then use a little solvent to wipe it down.

3M Adhesive Remover,

3M ADHESIVE CLEANER

available at most auto body paint suppliers will break the foam tape bond, and it will not harm the paint. I usually tape some paper towels over the area to be treated and then soak the paper towels. Let it work for 10 mins or so, (whatever the label says), and then the bond will break. Use the same stuff to do the final cleanup of the tape residue.
