what is the best way to remove after market pin striping from a car without damaging the paint.
the striping is about two years old and the sun has scorched it so when you try to pull it off it just falls apart. i don't want to try a x-acto knife or a scraper of any sort. i am looking for some sort of goop i can put on that will destroy the glue without damaging the car's finish.

thanks.

Is it tape or paint?

If its tape a heatgun will work.

Bingo. That's what we use to take the stripes off of old patrol cars here. Works great.

I use a rubber eraser wheel in a cordless drill. Works great, and saves your fingers.

Eraser Wheel

Any auto body supply shop should have them.
