As you may have read in another post, I 'm about having a good paint job done on my fastback.

And I've already kinda problem...with the rocker panels moldings.

I didn't manage to slide the molding after removing the nut from inside the front wheelhouse. (it's a 67, so no retaining nut at the back)

Do the molding have to slide to the back or the front ? Perhaps it's stuck by the dirt, any tip you have would be appreciated, because I would like yo keep those moldings (I can change the clips if it can help).

Did someone use a hammer to slide it ?


And for the other side I have another problem : I didn't manage to unscrew the nut, everything is turning around...

Thanks for you quick answer,, the bodyshop's waiting for me...

I should let someone that has have experience with that exact molding answer, but since no one is speaking up...

With moldings, I carefully pull them up and try to look underneath to see how the clip holds the molding on. With many of them, you have to gently spread the molding out to disengage the clips. If you work very slowly and carefully you won't hurt them. But be careful not to kink them.

I got mine off ('66) by prying them from the top to the bottom. I just took the nut off of each end, and pryed very carefully as Steve said.
