    PinStriping Removed on my 98 Silverado

    Well, i removed the pinstriping, then wetsanded with 3000 grit to blend it in b/c the paint underneathe is damn near perfect b/c the stripe was put on at the factory in 98.

    - First I wiped down the truck (around the striping) with Bike Spirits Bike Spray and Wipe Polish

    - heat gun and bottle cap to remove pinstripe

    - microfiber towel and adhesive remover for the sticky crap

    - wetsand with drill and 3" buff attachment from 3M headlight kit with 3000 grit foam pad

    - buffed with drill and 3M Buff pad from 3M headlight kit and Menzerna SIP.

    Here is the aftermathe!!!!

    Looks insane in the light!! after seeing this in the light like this, i CANNOT wait to buf this truck!! def going to get a rotary to do the SIP with on my truck!!

    Before... how the paint looked after i removed the striping and sticky crap, but before any sanding.

    I used to have a '94 formy w/ a very similar color. Only difference was youtr truck doesn't appear to have any metallic, eh? Anyways, pin-stripe or not, that color really sets that truck off! I give it a 9.9 out of 10 for sure!
