Default How to remove pinstripe?

I was wondering if anyone here knows of a good way to remove the pinstripe. Don't really like it, plus some places in it are messed up. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

If they are stick on pin striopes, spray them with xtreme goo gone, let it soak and wipe it off, repeat if need be

I like my pinstripe job ):

you need to re paint if they are painted on.
If they are stick ons, use a blow dryer and wd40 to get em off.

use an exacto blade to get it going. tons easier.

and when you pull it pull it straight back and flat, itll leave less sticky shit on your car.

eraser wheel, you can buy them for a drill... if you're afraid to use a razor blade.. the eraser wheel will not damage the paint.. just give it a good wash before removing and wax after

only thing the eraser wheels are not cheap, I had bought a couple 3m eraser wheels for the MH stripes and if I recall was like 30-40 bucks each
