How many of you guys have removed the drip edge above both doors on roof edge? I removed for sanding and thought about leaving them off. They are not in great shape anyway.

I did. The car actually looks better without them. Many people do not like removing them because when it rains and your window is opened, the rain simple flows right down into the vehicle. Others have said it makes no difference.

Simple solution to that I thinkā€¦ don't drive it in the rain, and roll the windows up if you get caught in a sudden shower.

I was thinking about leaving them off after I paint my car in the next few weeks, hmm. Can't think of many times I'd be driving in the rain with the windows open...

I left them off my car after paint. Looks much better. I do get a little more water in the car if raining and I open the door but it does not bother me much and just looks so clean!

I had one without. Water does come in. Light rain no problem. But when you get those fat drops then interior gets soaked if you are not careful opening the door (shake it too much). I agree it looks better without.

I left mine off too. After having little success replacing the windshield rubber edging, I left it off too. Personally, I thought it cleaned up the looks of the car quite a bit.
