Drivers window trim removal
« April 07, 2019, 16:24:57 »
Ok so my driver's window trim is destroyed totally and I'm looking for a way to remove it in order to vinyl wrap it. I can see two screws on the rear window but only one on the drivers window, and I'm a bit scared to pry it out. Any tips on how to do this??? Thanks, any help is appreciated

You're talking external strip against the glass?
