How do you get these off? They are stuck on there like spandex on a fat lady.

Plastic knife under one corner, pry up. Hair dryer to make them more flexible. Ive never tried to get spandex off a fat lady, is it an ugly deal?

They should peel right off, I have two sets on my LWRC's and use a tiny screwdriver to get under one end and just peel them right up.

OMG I LOVE YOU! I was trying to slide them off this entire time. Peeled was the magic word. Thank you!

lol! when i first read the question I was like "what is this guy talking about" I checked to see if mine would come off like usual or if for some reason they were all of a sudden stuck. good story to end my night :D

In my defense, I've never had any experience with these particular rail panels. The upper came with them pre-installed and every other rail panel that i've come across were slide-ons so i assumed these were the same way. You guys are mean. You hurt my feelings. :chris:
