get out there one day with a hairdryer, heat the pinstripes up in little sections (something like 1/4 of a door) and peel it off, before the stripe breaks, heat up the next section and keep peeling.
It worked for me :)

:thumbsup:

Fingernails are good for that too!! :p And the hair dryer as mentioned before. De-striped a VH in under half an hour. 2 rows of lovely (yeah right) brown pin stripes....

I second the motion for a caramel wheel they do the trick nicely, if the car is painted in acrylic dont get it too hot you might damage the paint, use a slow setting on a drill, also wrap some electrical tape around the chuck of the drill it will lessen any damage if you accidently hit the chuck on the body.
