Removing Painted on Pinstriping

06 silverado.. has gay painted pinstriping. its partially wore off on the drivers side of bed. id like to remove it all. i searched on here and didnt get much info. and not alot of info on google. several places say to wetsand and buff..

i think we used mineral spirits or some kind of solvent on my buddys dakota to remove his. it didnt seem to effect his paint. is that a safe way of doing it though?

Re: Removing Painted on Pinstriping

no...use a urethane reducer....it will take awhile but you can remove the pinstripe without damaging the finish..although,my thoughts are,"if you have to ask,don't do it"

be careful,you can ruin his finish,be prepared to repaint it if you **** up!

i've seen people try to buff it off and seen them smoke(slang for burn) the finish..


i do not use mineral sprits for anything to do with automotive finishes....

Easy off oven cleaner... It works really well and I have never seen it damage any paint. Although it seems like a bad idea. I'd try reducer first.

Re: Removing Painted on Pinstriping

I have heard of the oven cleaner i about it, i was going to suggest thinner but joes idea is much more gentle and you wont run the risk of damaging the clear.

Re: Removing Painted on Pinstriping

I agree. Although if it was factory paint I'd have no problem going at it with the thinner. As far as the oven cleaner, I learned about that from a local guy that does pinstriping and lettering. He uses it daily. I tried it once and it did work. However we don't usually have oven cleaner at the shop lol.

Re: Removing Painted on Pinstriping

ive used a spray decal remover on paint stripes and it has removed them easily on some, ive also used just buffed them off with a wool pad and compund on ones that are faded

A recent study shows that 92% of all teenagers converted to emo/punk etc. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 8% who stayed gangsta as shit



Dragin more a$$ then your mama
