callie454 2013 LML Denali HD build thread

I recently picked up an ultra low mile 2013 LML Denali HD. It has everything I want, and then some. 4700 miles, Steel grey, Denali package, sunroof, navigation, rear entertainment, back up camera, B&W turnover hitch, Access tonneau, 20" PYS wheels, 6" steps, wheelwell liners, tow mirrors, etc. Here's how it looked on the dealer's site:

As you can see, the previous owner went nuts with aftermarket chrome doodads. AVS vent visors, AVS hood visor, Putco stainless wheelwell trim, Putco bed rails, Gatorback mud flaps with stainless Denali plaques, Stainless rocker trim panels, Putco chrome mirror covers, Putco chrome hood bulge cover... Guy spent a mint bedazzling the truck. I have my work cut out for me. I have no interest in any of these aftermarket pieces.

First things first- fly to minnesota, check it out, pay, drive it back to New York... Got great mileage on the way home. averaged 19 for the trip. Very pleased! LLY wouldn't have done that with the speeds I was traveling.

After a quick wash, I tackled removing some of the aftermarket stuff. First off was the hood visor, Mirror covers, bed rails, wheelwell trim, and mudflaps. Piece of cake.

Next was the vent visors. Again- not a big deal. Little heat, and they popped right off. Still a little residue in this shot, but it was quickly remedied with a 3M eraser wheel and some 3M adhesive remover.

Next up the hood bulge chrome cover. What a pain in the *** that was...

Had to heat it, pry it up, heat it some more, pry it up- alla while being careful not to damage the black OEM piece beneath it, or to mess up the hood. The PO should be shot for buying this. The installer did his job- that sucker was ON there! Had to resort to using snips. Gave better access to the areas still securely adhered.
After some time and bleeding, it came off.

Here's a shot showing the fruits of my labor. Still some adhesive residue on the hood- I took care of that. I'm really pleased with the outcome!

Geez, the Pep Boys accessory catalog needs to be taken away from the old owner.
Defiantly like the after shots better, less is more

Looks much better!

Now, go to phase-II. Sand and paint the mirrors and hood "vent" to match color on truck!
