Default BSM removal

To those that have removed their BSM. Is the removed molding in good enough condition to re-apply if I decide I don't like the look. I understand the need to use 3M double sided tape but I'm concerned about the molding bending of taking a set with a curve or fold from removal.
Thanks.
Scott

I didnt have any issues with mine. The trick is not to pull on the moulding, I used fishing line to "saw" the adhesive apart from the body and moulding. Keep it level and straight as you work along. Short pieces were no problem.

I had them removed and never looked back. Do it!

Default BSMs

A heat gun might help as well to loosen the adhesive a bit as you use a fishing line to saw through the adhesive. Be aware that you might notice the paint under the BSMs to be deeper and a bit darker than the rest of the door/fender paint due to the UV rays that may have somewhat bleached the paint on the door/fender. Good luck.

Thanks guys. I guess I'll just go about this carefully and try not to damage the moldings. I like the way Mr. Bill's C5 looks and unless I see one in person I'll just have to hope I like the look on my own Lt. Pewter coupe. Thanks again.
