If the striping was brushed on (painted) I don't know of any way to remove it without sanding and repainting. Perhaps someone knows a way:confused:

Easy Off Oven Cleaner. Dab a little on the names. let it set for a bit and wipe off. Then wash. Seen stripper use this at rallys or check with an auto body shop.

You might still be able to see the name faintly because the name area was protected from the sun activity over the years

bpaulhicks, Another way is wet sand the pin-striping & rebuff the Clear coat. That's what I had done with my 1500. Took it back to stock taking all of it off.

ok I do know that there is a specific tool for removing sttipes i use it all the time and it works great.hr tool looks like a big eraser and it's a cream color, you c an pick one up at any automotive store and it's like 6 bucks . any whay what you do is fit the eraser into a good drill and gently rub off the striping. once it is removed just clean and wax and good as new .. hope this helps

Might want to check out whether the pin stripe is original. If so, the clear coat covered it as well. When I had
One repainted last year, the cost/time was prohibitive. I opted to have new pin stripe put on over the new paint exactly over the old stripe and then clear coated it all just like OEM. Looked like new.

easy oven cleaner

Which Easy-off oven cleaner are you talking about? The yellow is caustic and the blue is supposedly not caustic. So I would guess you are talking about the blue.

I'd go with the Blue, I've watched it being done but never really looked at the can closely and it has been a couple years, since I had our done.
