Default Bonneville Door Ribs

Can these be removed and whatever clips that are holding it to give it a smoother look? Ive had one fall off a couple of times but I dont know if there are holes in the door or what. I know the 99+ Grand Am ones were removable but showed a small little hole in the front so I was hoping this was the same situation with just a small hole or two. I know it might look weird now but my car cant look any weirder and is about to have a red rear passenger door (my car is green). Plus there is a body kit in the making for our cars so it might be wise to get rid of them right now for the new panels to come

You'll have holes. Get the bondo ready. You'll have to do this to both doors AND the trailing edge of the front fenders. The blend to the rear bumper cover may be hard to overcome where the trailing edge of the rear door mates to it.

On an SSE or SSEi, you'll also want to remove the lower rocker cover. It bulges out further to meet this trim. It would look funny if you left it on.

Yeah I just got two doors from Roadtested(a member here) and I saw them without the panels. It looks alright and seems like it could be easily filled.

Yeah Im thinking of doing it probably this weekend cause the new door Im putting on doesnt have the moldings so I would rather just have them all off.
