Yeah the duct tape on the steering wheel is already the 2nd layering. It started to peel, not so much gooey-ness there, but the colored layer peeled away from the cloth netting underneathe. I don't mind so much since there's no gooey-ness.

wow! ive ALWAYS wanted to put duck tape on my car. too bad i dont have a car.  Tongue  and yeah i would reccomend putting on some sort of covering on at least the steering wheel, so even if it didnt melt it wouldnt peel. and wow its so neat and straight! the tape looks kinda cloth-y? what brand did you use?

So many questions to answer Cheesy I love it though.

I used shurtape, you can get in online at identi-tape.com or monstertape.com, and yes it's very clothy but nice and thick Smiley

i don't know exactly, but I think I've used approximately 1 roll of green tape for the bumper and the little cubbys inside, one and a half rolls of turquoise on the hood, sides, gas tank, and trunk and half a roll for the steering wheel (Remember I put two layers on)

the straight lines in it are not as hard as you think. you just follow the lines of the car. i remember specifically for the hood I started at the edge and worked my way in and it just kept itself straight. the trunk was a bit more challenging, since it has that box-y shape to it, but it you don't get it right, you just peel it off and try again Cheesy

thanks for all the comments guys, im glad you like it Grin

Very very nice.  It makes me think of Bill Nye's grass car.

I'm not sure how or where you get ahold of it but the duct tape my dad uses at work [he builds cars for a nascar driver] is specifically made for the military and withstands heat and extreme mph like no other.  I'll ask him what exactly it's called or what company makes it if anyone's interested.
