So, I decided to turn a deluxe '77 Bumblebee into my friend's car for a Christmas present. His car looks something like this. But it means removing the stripes or painting over them. I've already tried using alcohol, it does not work... and I was wondering if anyone had an idea. The color will be lemon-y yellow. And I'll have to redo the front and rear a bit, and the wheels to match the right model year. I think I can handle most parts, but I'm really worried about stripes, because if I can't remove the stripes, then I'll have to paint over them, but you usually don't paint lighter colors over dark colors cause it's noticeable. And I don't think I'm skilled enough to sand the stripes away either. So...yeah. That's my problem. Any input would be appreciated.
