Regarding using striping tape, Steve, I've used it on a number of occasions in different colors with fine results. If the tape was too shiney, I just sprayed some dull-cote on it to tone it down a little before applying it. They're available in different widths, and of course the tape can be removed later if desired without any damage to the underlying paint.

I'd try my hand at painting the purple stripe, unless of course it was a highly collectable piece that I had intentions of selling in the future.


I’ll live with it. Just think it was a poor choice. As far as collectibility that went out the window with the box.
