After finding center and his sizing, John laid out the inside of each stripe with 3M's 1/4-inch Fineline tape. These initial tape lines will actually become the painted portion of the stripe. John does it this way so he can see the true size of the stripe as he goes. The best procedure to lay a long straight line across a curved panel is to stick the rear and then unroll enough tape to get down and sight the tape as you stick it down. The tape will want to drift over to the low side as you stick it down and this will be the best way to see it.
