I de-striped a recent auto addition to the fleet (91 cavalier) that had a
monstrous "swirl of toothpaste" band down the side. A trip to a bodyshop
supply store resulted in a rubber wheel that mounts on a drill motor.

*Amazingly* effective, and absolutely no paint damage. I'll never fear
buying a striped car again.

Worked like a pencil eraser. About twenty bones up here.
