Hello all:

I just bought a '96 S-10 EC as a daily driver. It's in great shape, and I pretty much like it, except for the black & chrome molding running down the side of the truck and the chrome trim over the wheel openings. I've seen a lot of other trucks around that don't have this stuff, and I like them better. How is the molding attached? I tried to peel it off, and it looks like it has two strips of sticky tape holding it on. Is that all? If there are fasteners that will leave holes in the body, I'll forget about removing the trim.

Thanks in advance,
John.

a blow dryer might work,but a heat gun definatley does.
try just giving it a good pull then get some wd40 or some goo gone or some kind of adhesive remover to remove the left over film from the tape they use to attatch it.
now around the wheel wells they a screwed on the inside of the wheel well all you have to do is remove the screws and your done.but since your truck is a 96 it might be a slightly different color under these peices but chances are slim.also around the wheel wells there may be a faint scratch form the trim also.
after you remove it all use a good cleaner wax(meguirs brand) then go over it again with a good wax(meguirs gold class)then it should look great.

The molding on the side of the back bumper and side of the front bumper is part of the bumpers. You have to replace the end caps of the bumper to get it off of them. It doesnt look bad though

Thanks guys!

Thanks especially for the heads-up on the bumper end caps. I'll try to get some replacements before I crank up the heat gun.

Regards,
John.
