Yes there will be holes.....you can remove them yourself and get them bondoed and painted for like a 100 bucks
100 bucks? maybe you meant 1000, but it would prollie be more like $3000-$4000 for filling and painting.

this post is more than a year old! Talk about bring it back from the dead! People remove them because it gives it a clean look. The side moldings do however have a purpose and that is why i plan on keeping mine on.

What kind of body shop do you go to? 3000-4000 dollars is like painting the whole car. Shaving side moldings and painting them will NOT be even remotely close to that amount of money. FYI, my friend got his door handles shaved on his civic for a measley 75 bucks (no paint).

Yeah I will be keeping my side moldings too, just painting them to match my car. Removing them does look damn good....very clean look. However, I feel it's to much of a hassle and to expensive to get them removed. If I was painting my whole car, I would have them removed. I feel it would cost more then $100 but less then $3000. You can get two full paint jobs for that price.

quality paint job cost 3000-4000, if you fill the holes from the molding you have to paint the doors, and quarter panels, thats like 65% of the car, at that point most people would probably paint the whole car, hence the 3000-4000.

most people don't have the money to paint the whole car but I do see your point.

Well, while this is back from the dead....

I am no expert at any kind of body work, but, since you can access the back of these holes when you take the moldings off, I don't see why if you put some mesh over the holes then bondo'd them, it should work.

That should last for awhile, as long as you aren't the kind of person that continuously slams your door shut.
