For those who will find this during a search, in the future.

I wouldn't recommend removing the rubber. Appbiz glues it, too. I should have thought about that and called to ask them. Instead I unstitched a corner, peeled it up a little and rubbed the seem area. You couldn't tell that something had been stitched there, so I proceeded to unstitch the entire piece. I peeled it up and.... uh, oh, glue.

3 hours later it was cleaned off. I ended up using paint thinner to get it off and then washed the section about 5 times with Tide to get the smell out. Man, what a PITA. But, it's off and looks perfect!

1974 Base coupe in Carrera outfit.
No A/C, no Sun Roof, no power windows. Fast and light, just the way I like it. (Sad to say, it's sold. But at least it remains with us on this board.)

1969 RSR Project. Heavy on the word PROJECT! No pictures yet. Keeps breaking lenses of cameras.
