junkndatrunk inspired this thread when he asked this question in a different sub-forum; however, the questions were never answered. I, too, am thinking of installing these but don't want to permanently damage (discolor/strip the finish) the plastic trim underneath. Has anyone removed this product on this or a similar vehicle? Any issues with that? I plan to get the kit made from metal (SS - I believe). Anyway, thanks in advance. Hopefully, I can post some pics of the car tomorrow. She has less than 500 miles on her. I think I'll call her "Ruby".junkndatrunk said:Love the look of the chrome pillars! Anyone know how long they last? Maintenance? Hard to remove/replace? Thanks!
