Pinstripe removal -wip

Anyone else remove old decals or stripes?

I finally found the 3M wheel I needed to effectively 'erase' my TJ's pinstripes. The local Sherwin Williams closes on weekends, so I had to wait till early Monday am to purchase it.

Looks a lot better sans the stripes. -imo- It's going to be a pain in the arm to buff out the ghosting left behind.

**before and after, shown below**

Please move this to paint and body. If you're on the mobile app go to general tech discussion and you'll find it there. This forum is for site/account/mobile app questions and issues only.

Thanks

No prob. The site looks different on a mobile device than it does on a PC. Take a look around and read the stickies in the top of the forums (stickies tab on mobile) and you'll know what's what.

Enjoy

Very nice job. I agree that it looks better--cleaner and updated. Were it me (and it's not) and the "Wrangler" and "4.0L" are decals, I'd take a shot at removing them also, leaving only the JEEP.

Actually, I was thinking the same. They're a little beat too. Thanks for the comment!
