Exactly what I intend to do...looks smooth so far...do you pull the tape while it is still wet or do you do it when it is dry and it peels evenly?

I did it when it was wet, but I've heard of people doing it when it was dry but they have a technique. If I was you, I would go look on dipyourcar.com and you can see how they say to do stripes.

Looks great pealing while dry is a pain in the ***. It requires following the tear to make sure the dip doesn't catch and mess up.

I only did the good to see how We'll it would work. My suggestion would be to buy 2-3 cans to do the full stripes, depending on what technique you use.

You can dip in any temperature, just takes longer to dry. Some people use portable heaters to speed up the process.
I'm going to do a light blue, almost like grabber blue, with black wheels and black stripe.
