I am in a waiting period - waiting for the raceline digital stencils. Here’s what I’ve done so far, after reading so many posts here. I ordered stencils from vanessacreations on ebay. I found these before deciding I would wait to receive the more vintage look from Raceline. I used a rotozip and 220 grit sanding rolocs to flatten the raised black lettering. Then used a palm sander to even out the surface. Used Wesley whitewall cleaner and water and scrub brush to clean the rubber thoroughly. I applied stencils and then used Ranger paint, with yellow, brown and black tints from mixol, and added distilled water to thin it. Then I used a gravity feed sharpe gun to spray. 2nd coat applied after 30 minutes, removed the stencil about 30 minutes later. Came off pretty clean. Checkout my test tire.
