Paint Stripes

I have a '78 F250 with very good condition factory maroon paint that has those ugly tangerine factory tape stripes. Does anyone know how to remove them with out damaging the underlying paint?

Paint Stripes

If you have an Automotive Paint supplier nearby they carry something called a magic eraser.

Yoh hook it into an electric drill and once you start the drill, put the eraser on the stripe.

Trust me this thing will take off those stripes in a heartbeat. It worked great on my Mom's Chxxx van.

And It won't hurt the underlying paint either. I believe Eastwood also carries them too.

Check their website: http://www.eastwoodco.com

Trust me this thing works like magic.

Good luck on your truck, I have a hard time finding customizing parts for my 88 F-150.:-)
