If it's the original factory pin striping, it's got clear coat on top of it, so you're going to have to use some acetone to remove the clear coat, remove the pin striping, then re-clear coat. Not an easy job.

If it's aftermarket pin striping, you can use a hot hair dryer (or a heat gun on low setting) to soften and peel it off, or oven cleaner will also sometimes do the trick.
