RIM TAPE

I was thinking of getting some red rim tape to add a little color on my back, its all black.

but i was wondering if u can use that tape on the headlights for trackday. OR is the adhesive too strong like duct tape and a pain to take off?


I have some left over painters tape also, but red would look poser cool.

Re: RIM TAPE

im sure you can find some red tape that isnt real sticky, but most people just use the blue painters tape.. duct tape isnt bad unless you leave it on there..

Re: RIM TAPE

Sure does, it intimidates the wind to stay outa your way so theres less drag.

Kinda like those NOS and FLOWMASTER stickers you'll see on old Aspires and Cavaliers.. you know each one of them adds 10 HP. At least, thats what they seem to think slapping them all over their car like that.. :biggthumpup:
