I am working on a new project, I need to take those side bumper strips off... Just wanted to ask the people who replaced theirs with the europe version how they come off? looks pretty easy.


To Clearify I mean the ones on the front side bumper, the orange ones..

First of all, you have to watch out with what you are removing them. Use some sort of a removal took so you wont scratch the paint. Second, start peeling them off from the corner next to the orange relfectors. The first couple of clips is gonna be a bit hard. You might feel like you are breaking something, but dont worry. The rest will come off easy.

One more thing, the first couple of clips you take off, dont forget that you have to unplug the light that goes in the orange relfectors! Hope this helps!

You gonna laugh if i tell you! I am not sure how it is where you live, but in montreal, every building has a special magnetic card that justifies your entrance to the building. Its hard enough, so i used that as a removal tool :cheesy:

I am going to take those lens off and smoke them and clearcoat them, see how that looks. I'm also working on getting some custom clear strips fabracated out of Florida, i'll see how these turn out before I go ahead with that though.
