Pinstriping

Does any one have an easy way of removing the pinstriping? It is a real mess and I would like to remove it and have it painted on. Thank you

If it's a tape type, a hair dryer or heat gun....

Hair Dryer. I would be careful with a heat gun. Might find out the hard way what the melting point of fiberglass is!

In Mexico they use those old fashioned heavy duty razor blades that you can find in the US as part of paint scrapers. And then take their time scraping it off. Also heat gun works. Then there's that 3M rubber wheel you put in a drill and erase it. Very effective but the wheel's kind of expensive.

I'd use it as an excuse to go to Mexico. The money you save on the paint job more than pays for the trip. San Felipe is only two hours from the US border and has a few RV painters. All good from what I saw and from the job one did for me. Here's a link to that job on my old Bounder: Paint Job in San Felipe

Thank you for all the advise. I had tried the heat gun and now know the melting temperature of fibreglass.

Opps!

Did you know there's a special deflector made to fit on the nose to reduce the temp for pin stripe removal?

Find the brand name of the heat gun you have, go to their website and check for accessories. That use to work but if it's a Chinese brand, might be a bit more difficult. Harbor Freight has an accessories kit. I don't see the exact tool I recall from electronics shop I worked in decades ago though. Handy little adjustable deflector.

Anywho, here's that kit: Heat gun accessories

Might be better off using a dual temp hair dryer though. Goodwill or any Thrift shop should have a selection.
