1965 Mustang-Removing rocker panel chrome

How do you remove the rocker panel chrome and the drip rail chrome on a 65? I've found a stud and nut at each end of the rocker panel which must be removed, but is there more than that? Thanks

rocker panel molding removal

On the rocker panel molding there really isnt too much more to the removal. As you note, there should be a nut on each end to remove and there are about 8 clips on each side that hold the molding on. For mine, I found it easiest to push the molding down, pull out along the bottom edge to clear the clips and then the top.

I cant help on the drip edge.
