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!

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.)
