Hey......that car looks just like mine! [Ha!] I also removed the side mouldings and most of the badging. Hard to believe I waited as long as I did. It looks soooo much better. The only badges left are the R/T on the rear hatch and the HEMI on both sides. All thats left to do on the exterior is black Chip Foose Nitrous 22s, detailed calipers [red] and a vertical billet grill. Question: What's the general feeling on chrome pillars? I'm still going back and forth on this one. Thanks for your imput.

O.K. gang .... you've convinced me. The polished stainless pillar covers are ordered and on their way. It's funny. A little comes off ... a little goes back on. [Ha!] I went with the set from AutoTruckToys.com. They have rolled edges that cover the entire pillar [as opposed to the flat type that leave some of the black showing] I also ordered a stainless tailgate handle for a little more "bling" in the rear of my Mag. [I will shoot a photo when they go on] The new question is: Do I lower an inch and go with 20s or ...... not lower and go with 22s? I have been told that putting 22s on a lowered Mag [1 inch] will need a bit of modification. Thanks for your imput.

There are no "surprise" holes under the moldings or badges are there? I was really thinking of removing them but didn't want to have to fill in any holes after the fact.

Nope no holes. They are just held on by some. adhesive

What tools and chemicals did you use to remove the moldings? Don't want to mess this one up?

Thanks.
I used the sun to warm them up and then pulled them off with my fingers. Once they get warm, they come off really easy. I had hardly any residue left after pulling off my moldings but I did use some Zippo Lighter fluid (naptha) on a paper towel to clean up a small amount of adhesive. Some recommend WD-40 also. A quick application of "cleaner" wax followed by some wax and it was done.
