Thumbs up How To: Remove chrome window trim

Sounds like there's a lot of people having trouble with this, so I pulled mine off and took pictures.

Step 1 - Remove screws
Front:

Step 2 - Remove trim


You need to apply firm pressure when trying to slide the trim horizontally. Once you're able to slide it out about an inch (#1, see pic), then you can start pulling up and wiggling it up and out (#2, see pic). Here's a picture showing which direction each piece of trim needs to be slid, and in what order.

I sprayed these with Plasti-Dip: http://forums.evolutionm.net/09-rall...ndow-trim.html
