I recently bought a 09 ruby redline SE.
It’s stripes on hood (the one on trunk looks just fine) is showing some cracks and would like to remove it.
What’s the best way to do it?

If any of you has actually removed the factory stripe, please chime in!

Thanks!

A heat gun on low or a hair dryer on high will usually make it easier to peel off vinyl stripes.

Be a ware that the paint will probably be darker under the stripe due to fading of the rest of the car, so you will see a "ghost stripe".

^^ Good point. If the original vinyl stripes are cracked, that indicates the car has been subject to a lot of sun (and hence UV) so the uncovered paint will likely had faded a bit.

google local graphic artist. One that specializes in vehicle wraps. They can make one any color you want. And should not be that expensive. I think you will have to reapply a new one though or as stated above the paint will be different
