I think on 05+ they just stick on.

00-04 have holes.
Mine were just stick on. I have heard that the 05+ sedans have holes too, but I don't know for sure. Only reason I knew mine weren't were from talking to another Saleen owner at FF who removed his.

I did do it myself. The hardest part was removing the adhesive residue after pulling them off. Lot of elbow grease.

would you like to sell those to me?
PM me.

I think some wheel spacers would fill out those fenders well!
True. But I've never really trusted wheel spacers. And the tires would definitely rub.

Definitely looks good without the moldings. How did you go about pulling them off? I've heard taking dental floss and sliding it behind one end of the molding and then sawing the floss up and down will easily cut through the adhesive.

As for the left over adhesive, I've used WD40 in the past to remove some, or Goo Gone, or mineral spirits.

Well, the one on the drivers side door was already loose at the front, and it just pulled right off. The others I used plastic weed eater line to remove them, like you said just sawing through the adhesive. Then Goo Gone for adhesive removal.
