    My stripes are getting brittle so I’m going to remove them. But before I do, I need some info.
    Has anyone taken off the factory hood scoop off? When I take mine off, are there seals or gaskets I need to replace before reinstalling?[​IMG]

    Ive taken mine off before to install some small LEDS. Didnt have any gaskets or anything apart from around the bolts which had seals around them. You are going to get ingress of water in there with where it is and I bet when you take it off it will be dirty underneath. Nice car :)

    This stuff is good for removing the glue once you have the stripes off but its NO GOOD at getting the stripes off. Unfortunately if their old thier NOT going to peal off thier going to have to be sanded off which in most cases takes off paint as well.

    My stripes were cracked and brittle. Once I got the pieces off that I could peel off I sprayed this stuff over the little pieces left on the hood. With a plastic spatula I was able to lift the edges of the smaller pieces easily and remove them without issue. Then sprayed down the entire area to get rid on residue adhesive. I actually cut and buffed the hood afterwards because there were ghost outlines of the stripes.
