Default How to remove the stripes

Hi all!




Im not a big fan of those typical stripes on the hood. Are removing them with a heat gun easy and do you think the color of the paint underneath the stripes is gonna be different than the rest of the car and show?! Anyone done it before?


Thx!

A heat gun will help the process. Be prepared to possibly see a difference from the paint underneath. If you give it a nice polish/wax afterwards it should help.

Hey,

I am also not a major devotee of stripes on the hood. There were also a stripe on the hood of my Used Audi Car. Along these lines, I have additionally experienced the Gun process. Also, now my Audi Car is looking remarkable as contrast with the first.
