Letting it sit in the sun on a 93 degree day definitely helps! And the foam glue left behind peels up pretty easily afterwards.

I used a plastic scraper to get the edges going and a hobby razor blade tool to slice the glue as I pulled it up. But most of it will pull right up if you go slow. Then roll up the glue left behind with your fingers. Very little residue left behind, but even so I used a rag soaked with goo gone to clean it up; then simple green to finish up. If you use a plastic paint scraper lightly it won't scratch anything.

Not a bad job at all, just don't rush it.

Looks good. I did mine a few months ago, looks way better without the 'wood'.

I did end up needing some chemical persuasion via goo gone.

One tip, if/when you do the trim on the doors (plastic piece around the window and lock controls) be careful your tool doesnt poke the door leather/vinyl...its pretty thin and easy to tear.
