Silly little question really, but any suggestions on how to remove a set of original equipment door finishers would be gratefully received.

The car is in a breaker's yard and a long way from a power source for a heat gun.
I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.

You can use nylon fishing line to cut through the adhesive backing. Use like a cheese wire. The adhesive strips used on the OEM finishers is a relatively thin strip all the way round, once you have started the cut they can be easily levered off. The OEM finishers are of thick plastic and therefore will stand some levering.

Shouldn't take more than a few minutes each one.
