You'll need: Masking tape
Paper
(1) can of Easy-Off oven cleaner (use the yellow can):

I tested this on the gas cap door first just to make sure it wouldn't damage my paint (it's a lot cheaper to get that small door painted versus having a whole panel painted). It didn't damage my finish at all....I didn't have to polish either.

Use the masking tape and paper and mask off above and below the pin stripe... working on only 2-3 feet at a time.

Spray on the Easy-Off and let it soak in for about 2-3 minutes then take a rag and just wipe it off. You shouldn't even have to rub it off...it should just wipe right off with the foam from the Easy-Off. Then remove the tape and paper and use a wet rag to clean up the area. Water neutralizes the Easy-Off. Make sure you wear gloves. It's EASY.
