Removing T-moulding
« on: May 09, 2018, 03:10:32 pm »
Somewhat of a random question but is there anything I need to worry about if removing t-moulding from an MDF cab?

I've changed my mind on the colour but don't want to rip it out if it's going to widen the hole and make the new colour not stick...

Cheers

Go slow.  Shouldn't be an issue as long as removing the old doesn't create any tear out.

Thanks... Is there any way to prevent tear out? (Other than going slow?)

And hypothetically, if I do end up creating tear out, what's the fix?

Thanks!

Depends on how bad.  You can shim in places where it isn't staying down (with folded paper).  You can glue the t-molding in place.  You can also use bondo in the really bad areas and recut the slot.  I wouldn't worry about it.

Just don't rip it off like a band-aid and you'll be fine.
