Re: Vinyl Striping vs. Painting?

I've bought tape from sign and lettering shops, but I think placing a 6 inch stripe is goingo be tough.

I suggest you paint it. I used one inch tape to designate he tope of the line. Use the blue stuff. You can manipulate it until you get it right, not so for the vinyl. Then, use a wide tape to "mark" where you are going o paint. Tape off the bottom. When you remove the middle wide tape, you have your area to paint...

This was easier for me than a wide vinyl boot I put on my old boat.
