Do I remove or fix/paint the door bump strips

Sun 04 May 2014 12:37:09 PM
Hey everyone, on my micra the black strip on the front bumper has been painted but the rest are black. And the front passanger side door strip has been super glued on and is now starting to fall off. So should I....

A: Remove all the door strips and paint the rear one to match the front. And hope the super glue dosent take the paint off. Plattsy has said about a caramel wheel for the drill to make getting the glue off easier.

Or

B: Fix the superglued strip and leave the strips on the doors but paint them and the rear black strip the same colour as the car.

Just not sure what way will be better or easier.

I am personally thinking of removing the door strips off mine and using the caramel wheel to remove the sticky gunk. I am looking at painting my whole car though.

If your side strips are really super glued on, my guess is that the paint may come off with it as super glue is brittle.

Also, paint the rear strip to match the front and look tidier.

Thanks for the replys, been distracted by buying a puppy. I going to painting the bumpstrips as it seems the easiest way out and yer car parks.
