easy way to take of pin stripe?

ive always 2 very thin pin stripes going all the way down my car, 1 white 1 gray. i do NOT want pin stripes haah. ive tried to take them off, but its impossible to peel it at this point. stratching it off would take hours... is there an easier way than stratching or do i gotta suck it up?

Have you tried heating them up with a hair dryer? You could probably use Goo Gone or lacquer thinner with caution. If they went on they'll come off.

Re: easy way to take of pin stripe?

go to a paint supply shop. the have a wheel that attaches to your drill. it looks like a wheel made out of eraser at the top of a pencil.

put it on your drill and spin the wheel in the direction of the sticker or glue your removing. than do a final cleaning with a glue remover or light solvent.

Goo Gone Gel will work wonders
I spray it down the whole thing so it has a chance to soak in and then it'll come off. Just make sure you clean off the Goo Gone really well after.

yes, or this. I've been tempted to go look for one, but I don't know that I'd use it enough to justify its purchase

Re: easy way to take of pin stripe?

Use a heat gun or a blow drier as stated above on a foot or so of the stripe go over it until it is very warm to the touch. Pick at it with your fingernail if you have any. then peel off about 10 inches then hold onto the part that has come off as you are using the blow drier or heat gun peel very slowly all the way down to the end.

If the glue stays go to napa and get some super blue tar remover. It takes off tar like no other and if you put it on a clean rag and rub over the glue it will simply break up the glue and it will come off on the rag some might spread but all you have to do is wipe it up with a clean rag.
