Ok, so I started removing the Shaker stripes off my car and started with the hood. I used a hair dryer and some automotive safe adhesive removal afterwards to wipe away any residue that may stay using a microfiber cloth. I did notice a ghost line of where the stripes were at but mostly for the skinny ones on the side.

Also I washed the hood after and noticed that the water would not avoided the areas where the stripes were at and it would stay dry. Is this normal?

I haven’t started on the roof or trunk yet.

Is there any recommendations you guys can offer to remedy this. Are there products or methods I should do? Waxing? Polishing? Buffering? Etc...

I used some Turtle Wax Polishing Compound when I took the stripes of my Shaker. There is just the slightest hint of a "ghost stripe" left, but it is only visible in certain rare lighting conditions. I think one more go around with the compound would take care of it, but it will have to wait until spring.

ghosting is gonna happen.its funny how the water beads around the areas ,mine does it also.give the car a full detail using mild compound or cleaner wax product then a good wax sealer.alot easier if you have an orbital buffer.wont eliminate the ghosting due to the exposed paint starting to fade from the sun but will help
