remove body two-tone material?

Hey guys,

I'm a complete noob when it comes to body work but I'm about to jump in with both feet..

My truck came with factory two tone, but the trim color isn't paint, it's some kind of vinyl or applique.. anybody have any pointers as to the best way to remove it?

thanks in advance..

Sorry, didn't have a pic before..

This is what I'm talking about..

The black in the two-tone isn't paint.. it's some kind of adhesive material and I'm wondering if anybody knows how to get it off? It laughed at my heat gun.. is there some kind of solvent release for it or some other sort of secret handshake?

3M makes an adhesive remover that will not harm the paint...any auto paint supplier will have it....some hardware stores too.
