I hope I'm posting this in the right section. I had some extra time on my hands so I decided to do this...

Thanks man. It was hard working with the tape because of the colder weather in Chicago.

Thanks fellas! I actually learned from my dad. He used to work at a body shop after college and his job was to stripe the cars. It's actually not too hard...just a ton of patience. You should have seen the first car I did Rolling Eyes

It holds up very nicely. When I was 18, I pinstriped my first car and it's still on there. Six years as of right now. In my opinion, the key is to make sure the area is clean of any wax or grease and using 3M stuff. I live 2 miles from a paint supply place.

As for washing, I never had an issue. The box says to do this when it's 60-80 degrees. Since it's in the 40's here in Chicago, I'll wait a few weeks until I wash it.
