Default Removing rocker stripes

I've been debating pulling my rocker stripes off. How is it done properly? Will there be fading under them?

Thanks.

Your car isn't old enough to get discoloration under the stripes yet.
You should be able to pull them off with your nail.
That's how I did mine.

Pascal did you remove your side skirts or can I just not see them in your photo?

They're there.
The shade in the picture almost hides it.

Since its summer just go out there and slowly pull them off.
With some goo gone and a lot of patience you will get the residue off.

It is over 100 today in Vegas so I just pulled them off. Realized right away that I should have done this right when I got the car. Cleaner look. There is a little residue left, but honestly not much.
