I am wondering once I remove my pinstripes will my paint be a different color? I have owned my civic for about 6 months.

No, not likely. I had my civic for about 8-9 months before I removed the pinstripes. It looked fine once I removed them. Go for it.

def. do it it would be easier in a warm day, or use a hair dryer to warm it up, it will come off easier. good idea too, pin stripes look


Edit: if you use a hair dryer, i'd keep it at a somewhat low heat if possible.

Use the hairdryer to warm the stripe, then be careful as you lift the stripe up so you don't scratch the paint, then use a mild adheasive remover to remove the sticky **** left from the stripe.
