Re: removing shitty pinstriping on eb fairmont?

either be very careful and perservere with the razor blade/knife or go down to autobarn and buy a proper pin stripe remover for your drill... they are a brown rubber disc with a metal shaft for the chuck. All the professionals use em...

Re: removing shitty pinstriping on eb fairmont?

I've also used the heat method, except I used a heat gun. Just be careful not to heat the area up too much or too quickly, ie, hold the heat gun as far from the area to be lifted as possible and go slowly. As the area heats up, peel the sticker off. With a bit of luck it will come off in one long strip, but more likely it will tear and be a bit tiresome to get all done. Should work great.

Re: removing shitty pinstriping on eb fairmont?

You could try this stuff....
3M™ Woodgrain and Stripe Remover
Quote 3M Part No. 08907 if you order

Here's a link to the page

http://products3.3m.com/catalog/us/e...er/output_html

For removing woodgrain vinyl and vinyl stripes from acrylic enamel surfaces. Jelly-like consistency keeps remover in place on vertical surfaces to promote fast action when sprayed from the aerosol can.

Cheers

I found out by accident they came off with my high pressure water washer.
Needless to say i did the whole car, came off 100% perfect.
Left no marks or sticky residue.
