STEP ONE,
Remove each stripe
one at a time with a
pair of tweezers, 
utility knife or a
toothpick. Careful
to only pull off 
one stripe at a time.

STEP TWO,
Apply the stripe to
the model in the
desired location.
For best results,
find a smooth
flat surface without
rivets or seems in
the model.

STEP THREE,
Burnish the stripe
using a tooth pick
or similar, careful
not to press too
hard. Do not use
anything metallic
or it may scratch
the model’s surface. 

Covering up factory markings

Covering up factory markings is

very easy and clean. Just line up the stripe and apply. Also works over decals!

Optional Clear Coat Finish

To keep the safety stripe in place permanently on 

the model, apply a light clear coat finish. This will protect your model and the adhesive stripes.
