Vinyl tape, ideal for use while detailing or pinstriping cars, other vehicles, boats, signs, machinery etc. Comes in rolls of 42ft length.
The lines show the central lines that would be painted. The dark section is not the tape but the finished result.
1. Press down a couple of inches of stencil tape firmly, at one end of the car, then let the roll unwind slowly in your hand as you pull it toward the other end, applying slight tension to the tape (hold the roll of tape away form the surface). Then following the styling lines of the car, lower the stencil tape to the surface. Afterward, pat the stencil tape down with your hand so the tape will not shift when you smooth it down with your thumb.
2. To make bends, the stencil tape must be stretched as the bend is being made. Hold the roll in one hand while pressing the stencil tape down with the thumb of the other hand; stretch the stencil tape as you make the bend.
3. Remove transparent carrier tape from the tan stencil strips by stretching or deforming at one end (widthways). Once separate, peel off transparent tape by pulling it back over itself (not at a right angle). Note: to make this easier, leave couple of extra inches of stencil tape hanging off the end of the car when first applying stencil tape.
4. To make end points, cut the centre strip of the stencil tape to form a spear point, then join the outer strips to form another spear point (This method is for double-stripe stencils).
Important: If tan stencil strips appear to be on the wrong side of the transparent tape, it is because it was unwound incorrectly. To remedy this, simply unwind only the tan stencil strips once around the roll.
