The tape is the single black line. It actually comes in a double pin stripe roll. A thick strip next to a thin strip. I simply cut it down the middle and used the thicker of the two. I can always save the other half for another project.Originally posted by Ryan S.
is the tape itself the black line? or was the tape used to make the stripe?
I still need to do the future floor polish treatment to her (him)...think it will hurt the tape?Originally posted by sandman
Good job, John!
I've been using automotive pinstriping tape for years. Ever since I worked in the auto biz. I always had some laying around.
The trick is NOT to stretch it too much (or at all if you can avoid it).
Otherwise as soon as you bring your model into the sun the stripe will shrink and come loose.
...and silver paint...right?Originally posted by sandman
Future will go fine on anything...EXCEPT!!!
Never on paper or bare wood.
That is the only thing that Future reacts badly to.
Says so on the label...not for hardwood floors. I think it reacts to wood or wood products (paper).
Okay..found it. Lots of colors!! LQQK!Originally posted by Fore Check
OK, I found it. The Pacra stuff is called Trim Tape. It comes in the following colors: black, white, royal blue, sky blye, red orange, yellow, silver, and gold. Each pack comes with a 72" long roll with 8 different widths, from about 1/32" wide up to about 3/8" wide.
Here's a pic of some in red:
It does an superb job as masking. Seems sort of expensive at first, until you've tried to and place cut masking tape to a consistent width for masking off a spin pattern helix. I believe the stretchiness helps it break the paint bonds and come off cleanly. You can get the same stuff in big sheets and cut out all kinds of things. I've even used it as fold-over-the-leading-edge fin covering.Originally posted by lalligood
1) For masking off complex curves and/or curved surfaces. Care has to be taken not to get a high build of paint against it though...
