    The bump rail is held in place by rivets. To remove you would need to first remove the black plugs that cover each hole where riveted, then use a drill to drill out each rivet. When installing on your ski you will need to either rivet them back in or use a torx bolt (which allows you to fasten with a screwdriver) and nut on the back end. Don't forget to use only stainless steel for this!

    I found that my local Ace Hardware sells the correct size rivets for the trim. I have a nice air/hydro pop rivet gun that works perfectly with them.

    Actually, most of the rub rails are held by double-faced tape and held on with rivets at the ends.

    Not real easy to remove. If you pull them too hard and fast, it will distort, and the color will get "white" mini stress cracks in it.

    Cliffy, I suggest you try to remove the rails from the 750 first, and see how hard they are to come off. You can then decide if it's really worth it or not.

    Are there any options apart from using the standard rub rails? Like something aftermarket for example? Mine is quite buckled, I will have to decide what do do as well in the coming months and it won't be economical to buy and ship from usa.

    Can you post a pic of the buckling you describe? Normal scraps and scuffs can be sanded out and work your way to 1000 grit wet sandpaper. Then you can take a car buffer that fits on a drill and buff them nice and smooth and shinny...looks like new again. If color is faded, you can use a heat gun to bring the color back but be careful with it as it's a fine line between getting the color back and melting the plastic. I think there are some posts on here that talk about what to do.
