I miss snow. The Army loves deserts, what can I say? Next time you have the camera out can you post a closer shot of your doors? I think it looks better without the plastic.

I like mine a LOT better without it too. I thought about getting a heat gun from Harbor Freight but my wife's hair dryer worked very well.
It got all that adhesive off without much fuss.

Yep. Just take your time and don't put too much pressure on it while your pulling. The heat will do a lot of the work so the paint won't chip.
I put the heat on a lot of the left over adhesive tape and it came off pretty well too.
