@RAYS B4Uwere you able to remove the chrome in a manner in which you could reinstall it if you wanted? I was thinking about removing them and having them powder coated, but didn’t know if they were still usable after removal. 

Yes, no damage was done to them, just go slow and use a heat gun.

I worked my way along the strip, heating a foot or so then carefully pulling/prying it loose. I used some fairly soft wedges to aid in pulling it loose.

eta: I removed both end caps from the running boards too.

how did you get the end caps off? Wrap didn't stick well, so just removing now.
