Unless the moco changed how they paint them the pinstripes are under the clear coat.

2011 RGU with more money then sence in it.
Oh and its black because blacks faster.

My painter says he has to sand through the clear until the stripes are gone and then reclear and polish. No need to respray any base color

If I remember right, if you are keeping the same color and not painting, once you sand the pinstripes off, you need to buff with 3M compound product made for black (I've used it) and get the sand marks off, then clear coat. Correct me if I'm wrong. Good luck.
