Exclamation Know how to remove?

Need to know how to safely and completely remove the two horizontal lines on each side of this stock body. They are the front end to back end horizontal sticker lines on each left and right side of the car that came with the car I believe, mine are white, some come in black. These are more like straight stickers than 3M adhesive stuff and I want to completely remove them off gone.

Hey man sounds like you can get a heat gun and some aircraft decal and sticker remover and it should come right off with no problem.

Are they pin stripes? You may need an adhesive remover wheel, can go into a drill and can get them at parts stores I believe.

Where do you get a heat gun? Would a blow dryer work? I wonder. I never heard of aircraft decal and sticker remover either.

I am not sure what they would be called, but they are white stripes on the left and ride side from the back to front. And as I said have seen them in black stripes too on the same model.

They are Pin Stripes. Sometime a Blow Dryer will Work. A Heat Gun would be better. Then use a light rubbing compound to get any remaining glue off.
Home Depot, Lowes, Harbor Freight. Even your local Mom & Pop hardware store. Maybe even Wal-Kmart a demographics Target in the Hardware section. MAYBE!!!

You can get a heat gun from home depot for about 20 bucks look for a brand called wagner. Aircraft decal and sticker remover cost about 13 bucks but it's the best stuff i ever used and doesn't hurt the paint. You can get that from oreilys.
