Default Canopy striping tape help please

Hey guys,

My first time using the stuff, I could not get it to go on smoothly. Ended up with a bunch of wrinkles on the curves. How do you guys do it smoothly?


TIA,

Steve

I pull it as I'm going around curves so that it's streched a little and it seems to go on very smoothly. I'll usually pull with one hand holding the tape and use my index finger of the other hand to lay the tape down as it curves around. Hope this was helpful.
