Started on one side and evenly started pulling slowly to remove them. Then cleaned off what glue was left with mineral spirits and a microfiber towel and then washed to get the mineral spirits all cleaned off.
Was the paint faded under the stripes? I just bought an 07 Pony Package (V6) with the racing stripes that I personally don't care for, but I'm afraid to see what's underneath them, since I believe they've been on since the car was new (but can't be sure). If I take them off, I suppose I could replace with a different color (now they're grey), and also the end of the stripe on the trunk already has some missing pieces.
