No real tips here, but it will not damage the paint. Just begin slowly pulling it off, also, if you have a garage and a hair dryer, you can heat up the pinstripe and that will make things that much easier. It shouldn't leave any glue on the paint, but if it does you can always wash it off with some good old soap/water ;)

Man you are in luck with the pinstripe. I had the family stripe on my car as well. The trick is to heat up the pinstripe and then start to slowly peel it off, but here is the thing if it just keeps on breaking away in small pieces try using a plastic card like a bally's club card something that wont scratch the paint, but does the job. Post how it goes.

Do what they said and if there is glue left over wax it. you might want to wax it anyway because there maybe minor discoloration.

Park out side on a sunny day for a couple of hours...then go out and start peeling..I started with the front fender and worked my way around....as for extra glue...I used goo gone, a terrycloth towel and a little elbow grease..Came of pretty easily....Good luck

I tried taking some of my stripe off, but there are two lines that are left (around each of the stripes). It's not too noticeable, but you can see it if you get close. Is there any way to get rid of it???

high pressure car wash, then a nice coat of wax. if not, rubbing compound, but that would be my last resort.

Don't use a razor like some dumbasses like me. It messes up the clearcoat.
