    The Safest way to remove the Taped Pin-Stripes, is with a 3M Easer Wheel, the Video below shows the Wheel removing the left over Adhesive from the door trim molding,

    My pinstripes were supposed to be gold, but had turned white, kind of like lead, hardened and were full of gaps.

    I used a single edged razor blade paint scraper, crude but effective and effortless. Being careful only left a little bit of very fine scratch haze in the clearcoat. Cleaned it up with Scratch Doctor, of all things. The truck is black, and you'd never know there ever were pinstripes (or scratches) on there now.
