Default What type of pinstriping tape is this?

Hi! Just wondering what I should use to replace the “pinstriping” around my boat. It is a tape of some sort and I was hoping to find something similar out there in the RC world. Thank you! Have a great day!

I would go to an auto parts or auto body repair supply store and get trim tape. It comes in many colors and a variety of widths. I'm sure you will find something you like. A coat of spray can clear over the top would be good to seal it and make it last longer as well. Just make sure you don't use a solvent based clear as it will melt the plastic

Auto pinstriping tape, properly applied to a clean surface, generally should be tough enough to stay put for many years through whatever the auto drives through. On a model yacht or cruising boat, it should be OK by itself. On a fast boat, the extra protection of a layer of appropriate lacquer can't do any harm. Ends facing the front of the boat, especially if shaped, will certainly benefit.
