Does anyone know a good way to take off that glued on side molding? the 67 I have has a great paint job but the idiot that had it before me decided to put rubber molding down the sides to prevent parking lot damage. Should I let a body shop do it? I'm afraid of ruining the paint job.

Well , that would depend on what it was put on there with, My 67 R/S has no door molding, and I dont think that they came with it . (correct me if I am wrong anyone)
to remove it, try a hair dryer to heat it up a bit. it can soften the glue up so that it will be easily removed. I think a Heat gun would be a little too much heat. as long as its not installed with contact cement it should come off without damage,

If this were my car and the paint is really nice, I would for sure take it to your body shop and have them look at it. Most of these strips had an adhesive-tape backing and pull off fairly easily. But in the event the previous owner decided to really glue it on, the body shop can handle it. It sounds like a case of spending a little bit of money to avoid a very costly repair if not done right.

I just removed mine 4 months ago and it was glued and screwed on I had to pull out the vinyl insert to get to the screws then pulled it off.
