    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.
