    Maybe... there's probably a youtube video of someone doing it if it's been done.

    Vaseline is also good for masking difficult shapes and things that tape won't stick to.

    Yep. I have used this method many times. There are a lot of wheel/tire combos where cards just wont fit.

    Someone disgruntled at the Ranger company blew the whistle that, that's what it is. I've heard that the best shit to use, having researched painting on whitewalls before... is line marker paint they use for the lines in parking lots. If anyone scoffs at painting them on, painted on whitewalls goes back to hotrodding in the 50's.

    There's another option... Port-a-walls those things have been around a long time too.

    Edit to add: Oh, I forgot that white rubberized roof sealer is supposed to be really really good, but since it's not a spray you have to spin it on too.

    I was thinking the same thing..I've seen pix of H.-D. with a pair of thin ww stripes on the rear, a single narrow ww stripe (or yellow) up front. I'd like to be able do it (or the wideWW in back narrow ww up front)

    Have to figure out an efficient way to do the masking. And then brush on that Plastidip stuff that people make tool handles with. It seems stickier than the Plastidip sprays.

    I've also thought about just painting narrow white stripes on the lips of the rims :-)

    If you need to mask at the rim, for the tire... deflate the tire and run the sticky edge of tape along the upper edge of the rim that way it follows the circle of the rim naturally instead of trying to finesse around it like pinstripe taping.
