    One thing I was thinking about doing was removing these pin stripes on the side... I'm sure there's a write up how to do it but I couldn't find it.. could anybody give me a link to it please ??

    Arrow Pull it

    Just pull those striping off. No big deal. They will not leave any mark or adhevsive if you do it slowly.

    Arrow The Dryer

    Decals that have been on a vehicle for quite some time.... comes right off when pulled......... as a matter of speaking, they will more than likely crack off as you pull.

    Use a blow dryer will make the adhesion gooey...... you don't want that.... more of a mess to clean up.

    Dryer should be use on the side door mouldings if you want to take those suckers off.

    Looks good... The pins don't look that bad.... but I'd probally remove them too.

    If I can keep my car on the road, I might remove the door moulding.

    Looks good, glad you went with the silver

    3M makes a great adhesive remover if you have some residue that needs removing after you pull the pinstripes.

    Nice ride bro

    If you like the stripes leave em.
    I have the same stripes on mine and I think they help the look of the car and the curves.

    thanks a lot for the compliments everybody !!

    Yeah I like the silver more than the black one now anyway lol

    So these just peel off with your fingers as long as they heat up first? Didn't think it would be that simple...

    Yeah they dont' look too bad I kinda like em .. I just think i would like it more without them..

    Oh, and while we're on the topic of stripes.. I wanna get the black bird stripes when I get a r/a hood, but the only place I've heard of them being sold is fourthcircledesigns and that site doesn't work for me for some reason.. gives me some kinda error when i try to load it.. is there any other places I can get them?

    I had some gold pin stripes when I bought my car and changed them to black after I too them off and liked the striped look better.
    I just peeled them off slowly so they wouldnt break constantly.The graphics place had a nice slovent that removed the residual residue from the car.
    I bought my Racing strips from a local Graphics printer and put them on myself.
    Here is a pic of them

    I like the stripes how much did they cost? I also have an artic white non Ws6 T/A and was thinking about getting stripes. Those look really good.

    Sorry to the thread starter I dont mean to hijack, your car also looks good.

    Lightbulb Your Pipes.........

    Here is the last idea... I don't know what exhaust you have going on, but it seems like the pipes are slanting down quite a bit.....I installed 3 inch Magnaflow pipes on mine..... The Pipe has a really nice slant and look... they also hung perfectly and installed with ease.

    No not hard at all just a little time consuming to make it right and not half assed!!
    They have a paper backing on top so you remove the bottom backing and spray the car and the vinyl with soapy water and then put them on and move em around until they are just right and then squeege the water out and let dry awhile before pulling the top backing off.
    I just measured all the placement marks from the center of the car and marked with a pencil.
    You really have to be patient,although I am the least patient person I know, and I was able to pull them off without much headache.

    The new car looks good! Used car dealers around here will put them stupid pin stripes on every car they get in thinking they'll sell the cars faster. They were probably put on when they were getting it ready for sale so you should be able to pull them off no problem. Every time I see them on a car I pretty much know it's from a used car lot.
