Hair dryer on high removes lettering no reason it wouldn't remove pinstripping.
Clean off residue with Eucalypus Oil or Soft cloth Warm soapy water and good old fashioned elbow grease.

pin striping is usually a small *size varies* stripe along the horizontal lines of the car in various colours gives the car lines so to speak.

not the body moulding plastic that runs along the outer most part of the car where it protects your car from bangs and scratches
