I just dewooded my RM Wagon. Took approx. 3 1/2 hours to strip off once moldings were removed. The car is white with tan interior, so I painted the de-woodied area with DCM. The guys got to experimenting with what to do with the moldings.
First we were going to sandblast and paint them DCM, but one of the guys decided to play with stripping them. He stripped two layers of vinyl material from them, to find the moldings are all brush finished Stainless Steel. He mounted his buffer in a vice, then proceeded to polish each molding to as shiny of a finish as the large lower moldings, which have already been stripped of the rubber bumper a year ago.
The result is that this is going to look so cool next week when we snap the moldings back on. Very Retro, I believe.
