    Only remove if in poor condition. I removed mine. Think there are pics in my thread below towards the end. Used a caramel wheel and polished whole car after

    Pretty sure I used a heat gun on a low setting for mine to soften it then I was just able to peel it gently, took a couple of hours but got there in the end.

    Actually some of these vehicles look rather good with that style of pinstripe. We've got two Heather Mist / Frost VS vehicles and one has the pinstripe and the other doesn't. Two of us in the family like it, one doesn't, but the fact is once you remove it it will always show with a darker shadow left behind due to non sunlight exposure. It will even still show on white. If I'm correct it's Heron white ? or Alaskan ?
