Is it the "wood" in the middle part or the "wood" on the moldings? I had my Cherokee repainted and peeled off the "wood" off the molding and they painted over them. I kept the "wood" in the middle because they said that it pretty much fused to the body. Looks good.

Hope this helps.

Im talking about the fake wood decal in the middle. Its an 87 wagoneer xj. My trim has already had the wood removed from it. I would like to paint the whole thing but im kind of screwed because of the wood trim pakage. Im not a big fan of it but if I just do away with it Ill still have the two moldings and that I think would look stupid. I could remove the moldings and fill all the holes but thats a lot of work when the body is in pretty good shape. So I guess Im am going to keep the wood trim pakage but the wood decal is damaged in a couple of spots and Id hate to paint the thing and have some crapy looking decals in the middle. Any suggestions????

I have heard these stripe wheels work good, suggested to me by a Sign shop that does large auto decals, you use it on a die grinder or maybe a good drill, they say it takes off the stripe without hurting the paint below, might give it a try.

If you realy want to keep the wood, there was a post on the full size board with a link to a supplier, but it's been a couple of years since I read it. You'll have to use the search. Are you sure there are holes under the trim? Mine has two sided tape holding them on.

You had the fake wood removed from where?

You can peel the fake wood off the moldings, that's what I did and it didn't take long. Then, they can be painted and it looks good. I'll try to post of pic of my Jeep with this done. Probably get some heat on it if it doesn't peel easily.

If you wood is damaged in the middle, between the moldings, then that's a different issue. It wouldn't make sense to paint everything else and have it look like crap in the middle, like you said. If the middle is anything like the Cherokee's with the Woody, then it's pretty much fused with the body and difficult to take off. Might have to do some serious body work to get it ready to paint. I would call a body shop and ask them about it.

Good luck. I was going to get rid of the wood as well, but since the middle part was in good shape and just the moldings weren't, and the shop recommended just painting over the moldings after peeling the old wood off, I went with that, and I think it looks better.

Yes I am talking about the wood in the middle, between the moldings. I was just wondering if anyone has actually tried to remove these?? And to clear up any confusion the vehicle I have is a 1987 wagoneer XJ. Same body as the cherokee I believe just different headlights and grill and the wood pakage on the exterior we are talking about. Thanks..

If I was to take it off my rig, I would buy/barrow/rent a heat gun, get some 3M automotive adhesive remover, A hard Bondo sqeege and go to town on it. Probably take a day to get it done right. If you park it in the hot sun it will be less work with the heat gun.

Shame the woodgrain is in bad shape. Wagoneer XJs are relatively rare. Ever look around to find anybody who could restore the woodgrain?? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
