I thought he meant he taped it off for spray painting, the fluorescent color looks too smooth to be tape.

Well, it does not only come in brown (see here for example). I use several colours too, which I buy locally.

It's actually 2.0 mil acrylic "carton sealing" tape, which is basically the same as the normal brown stuff. I got it from Tape Brothers which opened my eyes to the wornderful world of tape. Who knew there were so many different kinds? $3.63 gets you 110 yards, and I maybe used 1/4 of that.

LOL, thanks! It should look like this for approximately 1-2 flights, with my record. I had to capture the moment to prove that at some point, it was pretty.
