Pinstripe Removal?

I want very badly to remove the pinstripes from my '15 sedan. It's black, and the pinstripes are silver, but they look dirty and generally crappy. Anyone else done this? I am thinking I can do it myself, just worried about residue and/or paint damage. If you have done this, how did you do it? What do I need to have on hand to get it done quickly?

It is easy, get yourself a heat source like a heat gun or even a hair dryer and heat the pinstripes and that will allow you to take them off. There are plastic razor blades you could use as well but you should not need any special tools.

It works providing you have a drill.
