Prepping the car with Trakk Tape

Being a procrastinator, I somehow found enough motivation to apply Trakk Tape to the front of the car. Still have to do the side panels and rear bumper but that's for next weekend. Here's what I got done so far.















This is from the May VIR event with TrackDaze, the tape doesn't really show up on camera even though I did a crappy job due to a couple of Long Island Ice-teas.

You're lucky that your car is AW. I tried Road Wrap (similar to your Trak Tape, I think) last year and it looked horrible against my car's Jerez Black color; whereas, on my track buddy's MW car, it was barely noticeable that it was even on.

I think you'll be safe as long as you stay clear of the killer b's. I'll definitely stop by this time!

I've got a garage rental for the weekend, so if anyone wants to store equipment, just let me know.
