I wish to remove the pin stripes from my NF.

What is a good method of removing them? The car is going in for panel repairs tomorrow afternoon and the car would look cleaner without them.

use a heat gun to soften them and then just peel them off.

when i had my old lane i used high pressure water (by accident) then did the whole lot.
Then rubbed it down with some goo remover/cleaner (paint friendly) and it was if they were never there.

Took all of 10min extra of washing the car lol.

IF they are stubborn you will need to heat them up with heat gun or borrow a hair drier?

I removed some pin stripes from my old GLi. The paint underneath was brighter. There was a little gunk left which I took care of with some wax & grease remover.
