I figured it wouldn't be too hard to remove a pinstripe. If anybody gets a spare minute, I'd appreciate it if you could cut it out. Can't decide if it would look cleaner or too bare without it. Thanks!

I had to add a pinststripe to my white truck. It breaks the paint up or it looks too white.

Just my .02

just so you know, there is no easy way to remove that factory pin stripe, that is under the clear coat, i bought a used fender that i had to sand down and paint to match mine, and i had to sand the pinstripe down to bare metal before removing all of it :bawling:

This one isn't factory, actually. I was hit on the back corner once and the left bedside was replaced. Apparently, the shop couldn't match the original pinstripe so they took it off and put on a new one. However, I think the original one could have been added also because I remember it used to be peeling off in the corner a little bit. The one on there now is definitely a sticker on the clear coat.

I would leave it too. If you remove it, then you may as well put a Terminix logo on the door.

I added a two stripe, tomato red and silver, to my 2011 Sport to break up the white. The colors matched the Sport 4X4 that came on the truck. Made a huge improvement in the appearance in my truck.

I vote leave it on

I didn't mind the pinstripe in the original photo and I think it looks alright without it, in the photo anyway. Might look different in person though

I think it'll stay. That seems to be the consensus. I do think it looks good without it in that chopped pic, but it does break up all the white. Thanks, Rockstar!
