Default Remove vinyl stripes - 17th October 2015, 10:32 PM

Had stripes on the car for about 2 months, now have decided to go back to plain.

Whats the best way to remove them?
Someone mentioned a hair dryer but......full heat, surely that may effect the paint?

I don't know what hair dryer you're using but a little bit of gentle heat to soften them up a bit and you can just pull the stripes off.

Hair dryer will do the trick, just take your time with it and peel the stripes off slowly

Hairdryer won't effect paint on full heat during this process so relax all will be fine
