Title: Reflective Checkboard Tape
Post by: WZRD1 on August 23, 2010, 01:32:00 pm
Anyone know where I can get some reflective checkerboard tape? My Connie was bought used and the former owner put reflective checkerboard safety tape on it. The tape has two rows of 1 inch squares alternating black and reflective silver. I have found black/white checkerboard, red/white reflective checkerboard, black/reflective slanted and chevrons, but I can't seem to find this exact black/silver tape. I am refinishing my helmet and have matched the two-tone paint, but I want to add the checkerboard to match. I believe this tape is the same as that worn by police in the U.K., but I can't seem to find it here...

Thanks for the suggestion. I emailed them with pictures and it is not their product. From the pictures, they said it was black squares painted on silver reflective tape, which is a "common technique" that they do not do. I guess the search continues...

This all I could find    http://www.uline.com/Product/Detail/S-14686/Vinyl-Safety-Reflective-Tapes/2-x-10-Black-  White-Reflective-Tape      Or http://www.tapebrothers.com/2-x-30-ft-White-Black-Reflective-Safety-Tape-  p/icrstwhbk230.htm      Maybe if you laid out strips you could get a checkerboard effect
