    2001 4Runner Headlight Issues

    Removing adhesive trim off truck paint

    I recently took the factory fender flare off my 2001 4Runner. They were fastened with scews and bolts to the body, but there was an adhesive strip accross the top to seal it to the body. When I took them off, some off it didn't come off with them, and now it looks ugly.
