Stripping the Trim

Alright guys I am thinking about stripping the door and body trim off of my signature truck. It is starting to peel off in places has somebody done this and have any advice on how to get the adhesive off of the finish? Does anybody want the trim pieces? I would be grateful for any thoughts and comments.

peeling trim

also thinking about dumping the running boards and going to a black nurf bar.

The best way to get the trim off is using fishing line or dental floss starting at one corner and slowly working your way through it. Be sure to hold tight and avoid getting near the paint. Then use buffing compounds to get rid of the remaining glue that will be left behind.
