Thanks guys... PAIN IN THE ASS to install. I went through about 8 blue stripes and 3 red ones before I got all 4 wheels done. It would definitely be easier with 2 people. Tapeworks makes a great tool for installing the striping but it still takes a good eye and a steady hand. (both of which I don't have the best of - hence the number of stripes I wasted. You do get better with practice tho.)

Looks good!

It's a really good job, but it now looks like it belongs on a white truck wheel from the early 80's
