Guys,

So who has had the privilege of getting pinstriped while on a trail?:eek: How hard was it to rub out or fix?

I got Arizona pinstripping the first time out. Mostly it just was in the clearcoat and rubbed out easily.

The road rash that I got from pushing over the tree to turn around when Phunkeydude broke would have required touch up paint if I had not covered it with bed liner.

Chicks and wheelers think battle scars are cool.

Huey,
What did you use to rub it out?

As long as it is just the clearcoat you can use your favorite cleaner/wax. The clearcoat turns white when scratched but returns to clear with a rub out. If it is deeper then you might need a rubbing compound, but use it carefully and probably with a hand rub instead of using a buffer unless you know how to avoid too much pressure.

I have soooooo much Arizona Pin striping it is unbelievable. I did purchase a buffer from Harbor Freight but have not used it yet. It looks like it is limited to the clear coat.

Had a lot on my ZJ, but never attempted to fix it. It was a "JEEP" in all aspects. :)

Now, the Commander... no scratches. If there were, they'd be waxed immediately.
