    Default Nasty Side Moldings

    My side moldings are flaking and I would like to remove them I think it looks a lot cleaner without them. Can anyone point me to a thread or give me some tips on removing them without screwin up my paint.

    92 Isuzu Rodeo- straight axle swap in progress, turbo in progress
    92 Isuzu Impulse XS/RS- the boosted car from hell
    89 Isuzu Impulse Turbo- thinkin bout a LS swap
