So yesterday I finally removed the pinstripes off my car. I have been wanting to take them off for a while now. It was a lot simpler than I thought it would be.

So this is what I used:

and here it is on my drill:

After using the eraser wheel to peel off the pinstripes, I briefly used some mineral spirits to quickly wipe off excess adhesive residue, then finished the job with some polishing compound. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.
