Default Has anyone de-cladded a GXP?

Bored at work, so here'* a question...

Has anyone de-cladded the doors on their GXP? I can see underneath that the metal is molded so it would look like an SE. Just wanted to see a pic. Looks like you wouldn't notice that the side panels are gone when compared against the front/back fascias since the door cladding is so thin.

Might look cool, but also might make it look too much like an SE from the side (not that there'* anything wrong with the SE'* Like 'em alot).

No one has done it. Pesonally, I think it'd look horrible because the doors would in no way match the bumpers. Also, the GXP molding makes the sides look more flat, the SE moulding makes it look curved.

Oh no, goodness no. I wouldn't do it because the panels would never stick again. Just wondered if someone had and had a pic.

Where'd your badge go?

Also, it looks like you still have the cladding. Is that right?

that ps is faulty though. dont declad based on it.

if you declad, your door panels will not like up at the bottom or sides with the fenders. ps makes it look like it will, but i promise you it wont.
