Hey guys, two quick questions about exterior styling:

First, is there any recommended way to remove the factory pinstripes along with this rear "Tim Smith Acura" sticker that my dealership put in the car? The sticker looks like it peels off, but I don't know if they'll leave residue behind.

Also, the car came used with the gold Acura emblem package. Does anyone know a shop on the web that sells the standard OEM chrome "A" front and rear emblems, and the rear "RSX-S" and "ACURA" badges? I've found a few that sell the gold set, but I'm not into that.

u can take off the dealer stickers. if they leave a residue on the paint, use goo gone and it'll come right off..

factory pinstripes? My RSX didn't have pinstripes...in fact i don't think any on the dealers lot did. Never seen a pinstriped RSX now that i think about it...

I've seen pinstripes. Not a fan of them. There was one cool thing though: there was an Acura logo incorporated in the pinstripe on the front fender

I use to detail cars, just go ahead and peal the pinstripe off. then there will be a little glue still stuck to the car. Use wax to get that off. your not wanting to put it on thick rather just rub a little and it will come right off. along with a nice shine :)
