Yeah, heat those puppies up! A hair dryer on high setting for a few minutes should be plenty!

Do NOT use a razor. Many people do that and end up with scratches all over their car. You are probably smarter than that.

well you cant really use a razor blade on it i used my knife on it to start off with and get it pryed up a lil bit so i could grab onto it and pull but it just broke... I'll heat them up one day when it's warmer out and pull them off. what can i use to get the sticky foam stuff off?

i would use spiderwire fishing line, it like a metal coated in plastic but its as thin as fishing line.

I would try OOPS. Maybe it will just wash rub/rub off. Not sure never ever took the stripes off.

You can also try dental floss. I used it to de-badge my corde.

Use a heat gun to get the tape soft. Use something like Oops or Goo Gone to get the worst of the residue off. Go over it with Mr Clean Magic Eraser to get the rest. Then take it to the car wash and get all of THAT residue off. Go over with a couple coats of wax. But I would wait til spring... unless you have a nice heated garage.

A Magic Eraser might leave some marring on the paint. When I debadged the dealership thingy from my car I used detailing clay for the final clean-up.

i used that spiderwire fishing line, regualr fishing line kept breaking and dental floss was way to weak, then some goo gone and elbow grease to finish it.
