    You should try #17. I hear it works wonders.

    only thing i'm doing with #17 is eating it with jelly between two pieces of bread. anything else is a waste of good peanut butter

    I used lacquer thinner.
    Worked 100%. Google it before you say no.
    Followed up with meguiars polish with buff wheel.
    Factory new.

    Geez, if it’s this much trouble I’d just trade it I for a new Tacoma without pin striping.

    I would try to peel it without heat or chemicals and see if it will come off clean. I've had pretty good success if the vinyl is not too old. Then minor clean up with adhesive remover. Re-wax.

    Missing My Last Tacoma --- Had 12 Toyota trucks in the past and many other Toyota cars too.
    Try to do it in the hot sun if possible or at least a sunny day. Hairdryer and gently peel off and glue should come.

    All of the ideas above are good and 1 additional is ... wrap duct tape around your hand and roll the glue off with your hand.

    My Tacoma had that crappy over-priced hood wrap and etc on it .... and I peeled that off in the sun first thing.

    If you don't, in a few years, the paint color and especially the paint patina will be way off.

    Your truck looks great!






















    But would look even better minus the stripe.

    I despise pinstripes on modern vehicles, so I don’t blame you for attempting to remove it. With that said, I’ve used Goo Gone to remove decals and adhesive from badges.

    J,
    I have a couple of horrific white "PAINTED" pinstripes on my beloved 2017. I saw the videos on youtube. It looks too easy to be true. And my Taco is black. It ain't gonna hide a mistake. When did you do your pinstripe removal? How does it look now? I am scared shitless to try it but my Taco cries out to look as beautiful as she can. These pinstripes make my baby look like a Fluffer from Boogie Nights. She deserves better. Talk me off the ledge, Bro!

    .
    Mine were dealer vinyl decal type, not painted. Are you sure they are painted? If they are painted I would think that's an issue. Mine still looks like new today.
