When pin striping my tank, tool boxes, and fenders, I wasn't sure what size or brand of tape to use. After speaking with my painter, Rob Reardon, I ended up going with the product he recommended and we both decided on sizes together after looking at numerous photos. Here is what I used:

3M Scotchcal Striping Tape (available through most auto supply stores, although they'll probably have to order it).

In sum, we used most of the 73256 roll and just a little bit of the 72456 roll.

Since I don't plan to change the pin striping, we applied the pin striping to the base coat and then applied the clear coat on top.
