I want to remove the trim around the top of the doors/around the base of the convertible top.

Do these moulding snap on to the edge of the door/rear body? Or are the bolted some how. The moulding around the base of the top is looking preety shoty so I want to remove all of it and paint it and re-install.

Thanks

u could mask it off and paint the strip ur talking about, but when i did the rust cheak on my vert when i got her a few months back i didnt see or feel any bolts that hold that trim peice on, but i may be mistaking bc my car was repainted at some point in her life time, so the bolts if there where any arnt there now

Ask the captain. I'm sure he came across something when he did his secret project. I haven't had my vert for 4 years so I don't remember how they were held on.

Pop the trunk. Remove all the screws. Pops right off.

As far as the door glass seals, they snap in with the exception of a few small screws or little plugs. The little seal for the back little power windows has a plug under the door seal.

(all from memory, your experience may vary)
