Besides using the tool does anyone know the secret to getting the clips, that hold the plastics together, out?
Oh sweet I got some of them! They lil rusted over but I got some. Last time I took side plastics off I used my pliars and endes up breaking more than I salvaged so I needed new technique. Thanks Jeep and Retro!Yep, I use cheap wire ***** from Walmart.
They have some that look like this with red handles in the cheap tools for a buck or two.
That's an idea. I couldn't find the tool retro and jeep recommended so I grabbed 2 flatheads and man so easy to take em out.On 300's you can get to the bottom side of almost every plastic clips ,but that is not the case with many models , I find if I clean the dirt out the under side of the clip by squeezing them with a pier of pliers and then hit them with some WD40 or such spray lubricant , before trying to get them out , it will increase the survival rate of the clips
If I knew where they were I would use em. I'll look for em when I get home
yep, they will pull them clips out faster than you can whistle Dixie !..lol.If I knew where they were I would use em. I'll look for em when I get home

Flat blade screw driver is all I've ever used. I've had the plastic off my 700's more times than I can count, and have never had a issue.curved side cutters, works 10 times faster than any flat head .
those would be awesome but my flathead method is good enough. No point spending 20 bucks on that or 2 bucks on the clippers said above when I got 2 flatheads that do just fine. Thanks for all the methods!
