~ This a very easy and simple DIY but you will get very annoyed and frustraded. This DIY can take a while (I'm still not done)
First, make sure you're pin stripes are on top of the paint like a sticker.. You cannot perform this DIY on painted pin stripes.
Things you will need:
Bug and tar remover
Now, here's how to take off those nasty pinstripes.
1. Get some WD-40 and spray it all along the car over the pinstripes.
2.Let the wd 40 sit for a couple minutes. This makes them come off like butter.
3.Now take the hair dryer and warm up the pin stripes
4. Using your finger nail pick at the ends of the pinstripe. Pick about 1 cm off and start peeling slowly and carefully
Note: The pinstripe will rip at a certain point when peeling.. Some times you will get long peels (my longest was about a foot) and sometimes you will get small 3-4 inch peels.
You WILL have stubborn parts that wont come off.. Just pick at these as much as you can.. All my finger tips are very sore from this because of the heat from the hair dryer and it was very hot out. These stubborn spots will get very annoying.
Sweet spots: What I like to call sweet spots are where the pinstripes start and finish.. You will always get a good long peel from these spots.
If you are stuck somewhere in the middle with a stubborn part then go ahead to the other side of the pinstripe and start peeling from there to get a long peel again.
5. After you've gotten all of them off you're going to have some sticky glue residue... Take some of that Bug and tar spray and spray it over the glue leftovers.
Let it sit for about a minute ( hot climates, 30 seconds because this will dry into your paint.
6. Wipe it off- repeat this until all the residue is gone.. I still have a bit of shadowing so I'm going to continue this step then go for a clay/polish and wax.
^ You guys see that residue under the mirror in the second after pic?
