Has Anyone Taken The Tape Off The Doors?

Anyone here take the tape off from around the window so it's all color matched?

I think it might look strange, but I'm curious.

Re: Has Anyone Taken The Tape Off The Doors?

Ive done it on 2 fjs. Just be aware that the paint may not look so great under the tape. My first FJ was green and it was not painted well under the tape and I had to re-install the tape. On my current FJ it worked out well.
TheThorn, kpt104 and mackb like this.

The black around the side windows is tape.

I kinda like it... Did you just peel a little bit to see what the paint looked like underneath?

Re: Has Anyone Taken The Tape Off The Doors?

wow...i wonder if i should do this lol...i am very curious as to what it would look like on my 2013tt with the all gray.

how hard was it to put the tape back once you peeled it off? and does it stay on thee after you reinstall it?

Re: Has Anyone Taken The Tape Off The Doors?

Been thinking about removing the masking vinyl myself as it is showing more pin-striping then anything else on my FJ.

2007 FJ Cruiser, Vodoo Blue, Offroad package, BFG A/T TK's, Plus: FJ Offroad Lights, ViStor, CB Kit, Bilstien 5100 front and rear, few tweaks.

Previous toy: '99 Toyota 4Runner RWD traded for FJ.

I just went for it. I got lucky on my current FJ. Like I mentioned before, the first FJ was not so good. The paint was not consistent. It kind of looked like over-spray.

As far as "re-installing" the sticker/decal, you can NOT re-install it. You will need to replace it. If I recall correctly, Toyota offers replacement window trim stickers. But I could be mistaken. A good quality vinyl shop should be able to help out if needed.
