Anyone know how to remove pinstripes? They look factory and feel like they are on top of the clear coat. I've tried rubbing alcohol which fades the color off of them but you can still see and feel them.

Are they paint or decals?

Decals

If you are sure they are decals:
You're going to laugh but, smear some goo gone over them and let it set.
The laugh part is you can also use peanut butter.
Let it set overnight.
Wipe them off.

Years ago we used peanut butter to remove decals from navy airplanes.
Seriously.
It will also work for bumper stickers and such.

Years ago I saw a lady used car sales person use peanut butter on the faded blackout on a vehicle. When I laughed she said it works for a while. Enough to get it sold.

There's a rubber wheel you can buy that will fit on a drill. It's designed for just this job and won't damage the paint. Check your parts store or Google it. I'll try and find a link to one when i get a chance. The ones I've seen are just a yellow rubber disc/wheel about 1" thick 4" diameter and has a shaft coming out the middle

Heat gun or blow dryer should peel right off

Yup, usually heating it up will get it easier to work with, you can then also use a little fishing line or something else that won't scratch the paint under it, to wiggle in and help you peel it off easier without pulling at the stripes and breaking them.

I almost took out someone's eye with one of those.. I gave it too much trigger and it came apart and flew about 20 feet. I am not a fan of them. but they do work.once under control..
