Are you a documentary writer? Lol! That was a great description though. I'll have to re-read it when I get mine. Mine will probably go on the top box first though and I'll see what I have left over

Cheers

Thanks for SOLAS ? Response

Steve,

Thank you for the prompt and detailed response. You have probably sparked many creative helmet stickers made out of the SOLAS tape.
I am thinking of a using wife's GingerBreadMan cookie cutter as a pattern.
PM coming to you.

Thanks again,
MikeV

Thank you fof buying some tape!

So far 11 guys have bought some tape -- Thank you!

Over the last few days I have learned a few things:
1. Ten 12" pieces will easily fit in an envelope.
2. I have to pay extra close attention if I am going to cut this stuff in correct 12" strips!

My set up is not too scientific -- I lay a tape measure on the floor, and do my best to make each piece the same size. inevitably they fluctuate by a few millimeters, either being too long or too short.

Having said that, I hope everyone is happy with their tape purchase. I try to toss some extra tape in with every order, so if you got more than expected, don't worry!

If I have managed to screw up your order and something is obviously not right, please just let me know and I'll make it right. I'm not selling this stuff to make big bucks, and I really want everyone to be happy.

So, once again, thanks to all of you.

peace and grease,
-Steve

Got my tape

It came quickly and was exactly as advertised. Once I start thinking about what I can do with it I may even buy more. I saw a guy that did a good job of applying this to the front fork legs. It was VERY visible at night.

Good stuff, good dude, 'nuff said.

LOL.. That is what I ordered. 10 strips. Im sure I'll mess up the install way worse than you stuffing an envelope! That's why I ordered 10. Kidding aside.... Thanks for doing this!

My tape came quickly! Great stuff! Ads more visability to me and the bike. Glad I got it. Don't care if I look dorky. I'm seen better at night !

I've been shipping off several packages of tape every couple of days. Thanks to all 17 of you who have bought tape.
In fact, I am starting to run a low on the roll.

I'd love to see some pics posted here of what you're doing with your tape!

Peace and grease,
-Steve

Order Received Today... ALL PERFECT!

Absolutely flawless transaction!

All goods received as ordered, even with a little bit more as a bonus, as Steve said he tries to do!

Extremely prompt shipping, packaged with care and exactly as advertised, in the manner advertised, for the price advertised!

Kudos to you Steve, all the way... 5 Stars in my book!

Thank you so much, this is great!

If you had some AMBER SOLAS tape as well, I would take a couple of strips for the sides of my front forks.

I think the white ones on the front of the forks should work perfectly if you are on a budget and can't afford the $200.00 Hyper-Lites for the front. I am going to put some there for sure, then a couple of small pieces on the front of my handguards, then on sides of my Pelican case for the tail and on my Rotopax too. On helmet would be good as well, I will see about that. Endless possibilities for sure.

Many thanks again Steve!

Best always,

J.

Picts of my handiwork often lead to embarrassment, ridicule and the emotional pain associated. Personally I'm delighted with the way my helmet turned out! This stuff is super sticky as in you need to be dead on when you put it in place. Good stuff!
