i've hated that damn pinstripe since i got my 5th gen almost three years ago. well, yesterday i had enough and took it off. quite possibly the EASIEST "mod" you could possibly do. and it makes a world of difference!

go buy a 3M eraser wheel. it's a big eraser that you fit on your drill.



now give that ugly stripe a death stare! squint if necessary!



now show it who's boss: YOU! grunts and screams may be useful, just to make sure the point gets across.



careful with all those edges...



now go grab some wax and grease remover...



and some lint-free cloth. get one cloth moist with the w&g remover, wipe where you used the eraser, then use a dry cloth to wipe away the excess.



then get some car wax and re-wax those areas you just wiped down.





now pull it out, wash it up, and snap some money shots!





alright, i admit, those "money shots" were taken with a crappy camera phone, thus downgrading them to... maybe... "pocket change shots." whatever. it still looks sexy.

by the way, i know my prelude looks like a jeep! i'm getting a Koni/GC setup within the next few weeks, hang tight.

wow seems like a good way of removing pinstripes. i had to do mine to old fashion way by peeling it and using a heat gun ( AKA my sisters blow dryer :( )

yea, i used that wax and grease remover to remove the excess residue left from the pinstripe, but honestly that eraser took off so much sticky stuff, a good soapy scrub would've done just as well.

wow dont think ive ever seen a prelude with the ass end that high off the ground, is that stock height?
i know right?!? it looks so high up! yep it's stock hight though, plus i have 225/45/17 tires which are a wee bit taller that the stock tires. also, half of the 'ludes on this site are damn near slammed! you guys are making me look bad! Koni/GC's should be here in a week or so...

Clean ass Ludes FTMFW. Sekz dude.
:spinface: thank you!!


Well done dude I need one of those lol
do it! it could NOT be any easier. the tape, the sticky stuff, it all comes right off. i can't find a single spot on either side of my car indicating there had ever been a stripe.
