Oplitic, in your first post where you posted pictures, is that white color on the doors what was left behind when you removed the trim? I'm curious because i've considered removing it on my truck a few times. And is there an easy way to get it off without messing up the paint?

^^That looks like the double sided tape that didn't come all the way off. If you take that all the way off it's painted to match under the trim on all of them.

That's just the double sided tape. At the time I hadn't had the time to take it off the rest of the way. Underneath it is the body line you can kinda see and paint. The two tone doesn't look all that good though. The plastic is to cover it so they didn't have to do a seemless job doing it. I don't care though cause I'm going to be painting it this spring.

Getting it started is the most annoying part if you're worried of the paint. I took a large screw driver and pushed it under it where the body line is and pried up. If you don't want to scratch the paint then I would use some semi hard plastic to pry. Strong enough to pry but soft enough not to scratch. Than a heat gun and a plastic edge of some sort works pretty well to take off the double sided tape.

Most would say the front is hard to do on the 2nd Gen....but the rear is just as hard.

I have a C-notch in the rear..other wise 3" is about the MAX you could do...

that x is bad ass, it is built in more of a drag racing sence than the mini truck sence though. i know the chassis was cnc bent by art morrison, deffinaly one of the coolest Xs out there. i just would have made sure it layed out haha. i talked to the guy in cleveland and showed him a pic of mine lol. its probably the only x out there with a chop top, and he used an excape rear window

I really admire the sheer amount of work that went into that drag/show truck, and I understand that the hood needs to be raised in order to clear the riser, buuuuutttt..... that hood is HIDEOUSLY tall! :fart: Anyone ever see it run at the track?
