    He used Schwinn bicycle paint. It was called Schwinn acrylic lacquer. I haven't seen that shit sold in stores since I was a young kid. It was good spray can stuff with a high gloss finish. He used masking tape to create the "stripes." It's the inverse of what you're thinking. The tape was put on the body in the shape of a stripe and then it was painted over. Taking the tape off after the paint dryed made the stripe.

    Ummm,

    Didn't he ORIGINALLY use "Space Tape" to create the stripes??

    WOW!!! HOLYFUCKINGFUCK!!! What kind of Twilight Zone am I living in? What kind of Viagra-Testosterone mix are these 50 year old + guys on? I never thought I'd hear another Dave and Eddie album again. If I did, I thought it would be a mid-paced affair like the Rolling Stones or later day AC/DC. After the TATTOO single I was ready for a poppy album from old guys, with a few nods to harder rock (She's A Woman and Bullethead) and I would have been happy with that.

    I NEVER THOUGHT I'D BE GETTING A FULL-THROTTLE HARD ROCK, HEAVY METAL, BALLS TO THE WALL, FUCKING VAN HALEN THRASH METAL ALBUM!!!

    No, the space tape was used for the "5150" logo.
