    I don't think any yrs are punched in. I'm no guru but I did it on my 04 Silverado and also on my 02 Trailblazer. Both came off with ease.
    I didn't have a heat gun at the time, nor did I know about the dental floss method at the time So I just slowly pulled and used GooGone. Yeah I did it the hacker mickey mouse way but It still came out flawless.
    It's probably been mentioned but if the vehicle is over a few yrs old you may see a very slight color difference where the edge of the moulding was due to the unexposed to sunlight paint underneath.

    FYI, the 03-06 models are also just glued on. Also another tip i know of is to use a heat gun, or atleast leave your truck in the sun on a hot day, itll soften the glue.

    Just de-trimmed my 99 burb. With 100 degree days, no need for a heat gun: I just peeled off the side trim with little effort. I trimmed up the adhesive with a razor scraper (like for cleaning windows...used them all the time in a detail shop I used to work for. Wonderful for pulling off vinyl dealership stickers too). the rear chevrolet emblem was a pain. Gotta get some touch-up paint from trying to get a hold of that critter. Much stonger adhesice tape. The rest was just normal 2 sided foam tape.

    Next is the PO's pin strip tape. Gonna clean that off and lay new myself.

    BTW: White '99 Burb, lived most it's life in Pheonix and Tucson AZ. Desert truck and the paint hasn't shown up faded where I pulled mine off. For darker trucks, you may want to pull a small spot and check. I don't know if a good compound buffing will blend the fade or not.

    I took the Silverado & Chevrolet of my tailgate with fishing line not a big deal. Now taking off the double back tape not so easy I used gasoline and a rag took some time but the tailgate looks great. I would how ever like to remove my side molding and install GMC chrome side molding. Don't ever go fishing so don't know a bought fishing line I thought the thiner the better so I used 8 LB 3.6 and it kept breaking what would be a good typ to use for the side molding?

    I took the mouldings off my 2007 Silverado last weekend because they were yellowing and looked different than the rest of the truck. I found that there were full of dirt when i pulled them off. I used my pressure washer to remove the tape and them used laquer thinner on a soft rag to remove the residue left behind only took me about 3 hours and it was well worth it

    I want to do this to my 2004 chevy silverado but was curious is it just the adhesive that sticks them on or is it punched?
