Brookville,PA? That sounds familiar.

I tried kerosene, it did not work well. I bought some 3m adhesive remover yesterday, now I just need to quit working 12 hour days so I can do some things to my truck. When I took mine off I used a scraper, made for taking old inspection stickers off. I went real slow and had no problems with scratching the paint.

I just got a Ranger with a really ugly stripe on it. I used a hair drier and peeled it off.

I took off the remaining glue with lacquer thinner and finished up the rest with the 3m wax and adhesive remover. The 3m wax and adhesive remover didn't work very well by it self but did a nice final clean up.

I then followed up with compound and wax. Looks great!

take a hair dryer, and get it warm, but as mentioned before dont keep it one spot to long or you will melt you paint. ya so, get the pin stripe warm then take a credit card or liscense or whatever it is you want to use to peel up the end. Then take the thinnest fishing line you can get, and put it under the spot you already peeled up and peel from there, it may take a while, but it will work good.



good luck man.

I am a Detailer for a Body shop and we'd use Paint Thinner, doesn't mess up the paint just gets the stuff you don't want on there off, especially overspray/random adhesive.

I detailed cars also, we used laquer thinner also but make sure to wax over it when you are done.

rubbing alcohol did the trick for me. until i did this little mod i didn't really want to do anything to my truck, but seeing how much better it looks w/o the stripe...everything else just grew on me

Yes and that is why I haven't removed the stickers on the side of my truck as they have been on since 1998. I heard that buffing the paint with a polishing compound will blend it, but I'm to afraid.

i have a 97 ranger and i pulled the pinstripe off and it looks like after 2 washes. i used a hair dryer and it came off really easy. just use a razor to get the edge up and heat up the sticker a little and it should peel off pretty clean

another thing that would work would be one of those rubber wheels but that will also take the paint off if you leave it in one spot to long
