i assume the rub strips are held on by 3M Acrylic foam Tape, or a simlar product.

Therefore if you do remove it, you will also need to remove the adhesive left on the bodywork, in order to be able to re-apply new adhesive and re-stick the rub strip.

Yep that's correct, I removed mine to colour code them. Absolute PITA to remove the old adhesive. I would advise not taking them off. Try and touch it up still on the car.

Could you take me through how you paitned yours on your car and how much it cost for the paint etc?

I have black rub strips on my car, and they have a rough texture. I'd like to paint them body coloured and have them smooth.

Many thanks in advance

For reference, there is a specific 3M product for this purpose. It is called 3M General Purpose Adhesive Cleaner.

I'm currently trying to get hold of some [!], waiting to hear back from 3M.
