    Default Trim Adhesive on Chevy Suburban

    I am taking the trim off of my burb and am not sure what the easiest way to remove the adhesive is. I bought some 3m adhesive remover and it doesn't seem to work. Any Ideas? And thank you in advance.
    96 Chevy Suburban with a 350. Pretty much stock for now. Mods to come.

    Get a 3M adhesive wheel remover. It works in a hand drill and works great to remove the adhesive. Then use the 3M cleaner you have to remove anything left. I used one of these on my BLACK Silverado and it left no marks in the black paint. One tip, before you begin wash the area good with soap and water to get any unseen dirt of.

    Question, can you removed the body trim and leave it off, or does it need to be on there, I would like to have clean lines on my 96.
