taking off the trim?

I was wondering how the trim on the side of my 81 e21 was held onto the car. I'm thinking of taking it off but im not totaly sure yet. The paint on my car is fine, so if it is gona leave holes then im not even gona think about welding them up; but if its jsut held on by sticky stuff, then i may do it. what do you guys think.

I think it is just adhesive, but don't take my word for it. You might PM AJ's320i and ask him.

Two wheels or Four, I'm happy as long as the throttle is pinned.

e30s have holes, and when you pull them off, you break the little plastic shits that hold them in there.

It will leave holes!

Im not totally sure as far as the e21 is concerned but i am 98.9876% sure it is held on by some kind of clops and will leave holes if you were to remove it.
