Hey all,
I was on another forum, and some said to spray rubbing alcohol right above the door guard, and the next morning it will be on the ground. Will rubbing alcohol hurt the paint? Thanks for any input!!

Not sure about the rubbing alcohol, but here's a quote from a another user who completely debadged his Charger, including removing the door gaurds:

*** the door was surprisingly the easiest part to do used a lil bit of floss then just pulled LOL all came off clean. It felt like a big rubber strip.

The user was: Farkedup

Just look him up.

Check with your local paint supplier.. Body shop aer a great resource... There are a few products that are formulated to remove molding adheasive and not damage your paint... Most of the (industry acceptable) adheasive removers are new paint friendly.... Find a good, trustworthy, body shop that will give you good advice..... Some of the products even retain the original stickum if used properly..... When I (Finialy) do get my car I pln to change the moldings for the MAGNUM chrone insert rype...\\

Ordered 7/20.. As of today ------- BX Status......
Black R/T R&T with PP......
.
THE LONGER I WAIT THE MORE UNIQUE THE CAR BECOMES.....

ALL YOU NEED IS A HAIR DRYER (or a hot day) AND YOUR TWO ARMS.

don't listen to people suggesting you apply chemicals to your car - i wiggled the guards off patiently and they came off perfectly clean. took about 5 minutes after i had warmed them up enough.

What's the Door Guard? I am sorry I am new and I just got a brand new Dodge Charger and looking to do some mods too, so I was wondering what is that?

It's the trim piece running down the side of you Charger. It "hopefully" saves a ding if a scumbag parked next to you straight arms you with his door. :cry:

after my floss and pull I had a few oddball cloudy spots that I took the wax and buffer wheel to and all turned out perfect.

Just so you gus know Rubbing alcohol will not the hurt the painted finish of the car. We use it all the time for years installing. For debadging, I have always used a heat gun to warm it up and then a plastic blade to pop them off.
