i need to know someone or somewhere in or around Houston to put my rim tape on for me. I tried looked really bad so I bought more, I have been to motorcycle shops, car paint shops, tint shops, and mechanic shops, and all say they don't do it. I have added many aftermarket parts with success but can't get the tape to look good, so i got 2 more rolls in case it get messed up again I have plenty, would love info where to have it done, or if someone on here know how i would love the help!

thanks : charles

The stuff I got came with an applicator that sat against the lip so you'd get a nice even spacing all the way around. In short, can't really answer your question, but if I can find the applicator you're welcome to use it.

This is the kit I bought:

Awww. U poor thing!!! Hehe. Messing up so much. Hahah.
If I was useful id help but im of no help. Good luck!!

Ps. My friend bought me a rim tape that looks like a half moon, 4 pieces. So...It would be applied piece by piece and id assume its easier to control than a roll. Maybe u should check it out.
