Default strip/trim delete 700

Thinking about removing the door strip/trim on my 760.
This involves welding the holes and respaint.
Looking for photos of this .. who had done this and how does it look

You could level the sheet metal so there won't be an indention on the fenders or doors. I think that would look much better.

After losing my front driver side trim piece I’ve been thinking of doing the same thing. Good to see I’m not the only one. I’ve been thinking about temporarily just getting rubber plugs or something of the sort. Is you’re a wagon or sedan? I’d love to see pics of whatever you come up with

I like the contrast of the black trim and bumpers on these cars. Plus, they do have a purpose.

Surely this is performance related.
