if you're talking about a common adhesive vinyl pinstripe, you can use a heat gun or an eraser wheel... usually when I'm removing a pinstripe, I'm also removing badges, so I'd be using an eraser wheel, but a lot of times, once you get the stripe edged up a little, you can just walk it down the entire vehicle peeling it back without any more heat than the sunshine

eraser wheel works great. Heat works great also. If it's dry and old, then the eraser wheel may be a bit better.

Just got done trying to get it off. The side of the car in the sun definitly came off easier.
Also went ahead and removed the Focus badge.
Now I need to find a way to remove lovebug carcasses.

Thanks for the help guys.
