Pin Strip Tape

Does anyone have a good way to remove pin strip tape? The tape is about 2" wide.

Hair dryer and a bondo scraper, or credit card, or dental floss.. Or get a pin stripe eraser from the auto parts store or a body shop.

I don't think there is a paint safe, easy way to remove a wide piece of tape that's been on a vehicle for 10+ years. And, when you get it removed, the paint underneath will be several shades brighter than the rest of your paint.

Hairdryers and rubbing alcohol are best bet, but they're usually so dried and crackled that it's more of an archeological expedition with tiny tools picking one tiny piece at a time.

Have fun! Been there.

The regular every day "red rubber eraser" is the solution.

The eraser really is the way to go. My 89 had the awesome teal/pink stripes and I took them off in 99 with a drill eraser no problem.

Well I Got Started

I got started on Sunday and it is a very slow process using the hair dryer. I did get the drivers side door finished complete buffed out and waxed and it looks great. I will look into an eraser. I also found 3M adhesive and glue remover that works great to get the glue marks off.

yeah an eraser is the way to go. used it to remove all the pinstriping on mine... its just a rubber wheel that goes in a drill, and as mentioned, can be found pretty easily

ex:
Amazon.com: Pinstripe Eraser Pad (Qty: 1): Automotive

NOTE: see if you can find one locally cuz they jack up shipping online

Yup...an eraser wheel will take it right off...some alcohol for the left over adhesive..then some waxing/buffing/polishing to make the rest of the jeep shine like the paint under that stripe

I haven't read this whole thread but I have to holler
STOP!!!

Pink erasers have an abrasive in them that WILL scratch.

Use an art gum eraser, if that is your weapon of choice, instead.
