As above really. Have a S1 where the makeres name and other raised bits are painted in a greeny kind of colour? I quite like the look and have a new S1 id like to do the same with. At first id presumed that someone had done this after they got the tyre but on closer inspection it looks to neat, factory? Anyway i dont have the steadiest hand....any ideas :D

You can buy a white tyre marker easy enough Sef, you could ask your lass if you can trade a finger for one :lol:

Check out e bay or a car shop mate, I did my schwalbes on Von Dutch.

Steady hand and patience mate, whilst it's still wet you can wipe off with damp cloth

Didn't whitewalls come with a green coating over the white? Wipe off with solvent when mounted?
As far as the steady hand, ask the surgeon to demonstrate his skills for you.

Came out really well, all the lettering was raised so it wasnt to hard to do, just took a while.

Here you go Dug, was a tad nippy in the garage so had to be quick. Hope these are okay.
