    Opinions / suggestions on what you think

    Looking for opinions / suggestions on what you all think. Remove the black side molding, or, leave it and paint it red... or, perhaps something else?

    Thanks for your time.

    I have the exact same car, I want to paint mine red as without the moldings the doors look even bigger.

    Leave them and possibly paint them back or red.

    I say leave them and paint them red.. It's something I really want to do to my car, whenever I get the chance. When you remove them, the doors just look like they're missing something.

    I'm in the "remove them" camp.

    Painted them body color on both sc's imo the doors look redicoulous without the trim unless you have a really dark color car. Also removing them usually results in needing a ton of body work to make it look right.

    It's your car, do what you want.

    What !I! would do is paint body color; or use it as a dividing line to have the top one color the bottom another. Your choice.

    Everyone, thanks for all of the suggestions and pictures so far. All beautiful Thunderbirds. Seeing both (with and without the molding), it's almost as if I am torn between the two, LOL!

    I guess it depends on the color of the vehicle, as was mentioned. I'll have to really think about this one. I really appreciate all of the feedback so far. Thanks to all of you!!

    I prefer the painted moldings look and it also adds some door ding protection.

    You could always paint the car to match the moulding...

    I do the same whenever possible. But if you do stuff with a group like Hot Rod Power Tour, Rods & Hogs or even the Shootout cruise over to the Parkette drive in, you are sometimes forced to park next to other cars. Best you can do is surround yourself with other nice SCs And XR7s.
