My 65 has had everything shaved off of it except for my front end and rear bumper, Turned out looking really clean and I couldn't be happier with my choice to shave it. For the bed trim.. My dad cut out about and inch in the middle of top of the bed rail folded it in just a little bit and took some thick steel replace the top of the rail, only doing small sections at a time. Not all the dents in the side of my quarters were fixed at the time we did this, so it made it a pain in the rear to fix when we started doing body work though, make sure your panel is how you want it to be before you do any welding.. here's some pics..

Hope this helps!

OPGI has a step-by step posted for 3rd/5th Gen bed moulding installs in their summer sales catalog. Obviously they want you to buy a set of mouldings but if you can just get them to send you the catalog, you get free instructions with photos. It appears the 5th Gen are a little easier to work with than the 3rd Gen but either way, removal/installation without chipping any paint will be a PITA!

Are you trying to do away with the molding completely or remove and replace?
