    I am thinking of making my own striping kit, I was wondering what everyone's opinion is on what stripes best a rubber one or the rolling kind. TIA for any input.

    I tried a roller from Jungle Jims. This roller was junk. I installed rubber material of the back engine shroud on my Bad Boy. It about 1/4" off the ground on level concrete. Works great!

    They also have some good video of the equipment they sell. So you can see it work before purchasing it.

    Thanks everyone for your input and info. I went with the rubber kind, I started it today and got off to a good start just gotta paint it and I'll be all set. I will post pics when I finish it. Thanks again for your help.
