What brand of 1/8 pin striping to use?


I tried Great Planes 1/8 striping tape and it would not stretch enough to make curves (1.5 inch radius). I had an old roll of similar tape, but another color which stretched fine and made the curves easily, but I do not know what brand it was.

Any ideas? It may have been Carl Goldberg brand. Bottom line...what brands of striping tape will make 1 inch radius curves?

I use 3M automotive tapes, in various widths, to do all my pin striping.

TomCrump, looks like you have nice curves with the pin stripes. What technique do you use to make the smooth curves?

I do it by eye, pulling and stretching the tape as I go.

+1 It's hard to beat the 3M stuff.... anything 3M for that matter.
