, as seen on a B&C sales car

I might be being totally daft here but has anyone thought of asking B&C?

It does look nice...

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

@E18VRA that's a great wee job and looks superb. Very nice. What width did you go for?

Blatantly copied this idea on my SR earlier. 3mm tape (a bit narrow).

I won’t say it’s the best job in the world - really just trying it to see if I like it - for 30mins if my time and about £3 in material it seemed like the best way to figure that out.

Current verdict is - I’m not sure 😀

Will “run” it for a couple of weeks any make my mind up..... car needs a wash btw.

Had another look today in better daylight and decided it doesn’t work so well will the   S diffuser design (and the 3mm tape was a bit half-hearted).. Peeled it back off again. :)

ah well - nothing ventured  :D

I bought some 6mm tape today and started to have a quick go ... I need more time, managed to do the first bend but the 2nd one just wasnt happening.

Any tips before I resort to Google tuition?

I’m no expert. I found it worked pulling off approx 10cm of backing and holding the tape 10cm from where I wanted to apply it - then pressing it on with my other hand.

I finally got this done. Seemed the issue was its just to cold, so thanks to a hair dryer I now have a result I am happy with. On the centre lines I did them in a point just to make the finish less abrupt.

Thanks for the inspiration gents.IMG_3059.thumb.JPG.9dcf6a1972a67c247c9fbcbbab634edf.JPGIMG_3060.thumb.JPG.92101acac6dd6e83bdc6e669ac3e7568.JPG
