    Question Lines in bay?

    I am looking for a company that has advertised on FH that makes lines that go in bays such as yellow type vinyl and such. Anyone have the company info if they still exist. They sent me some samples and I would like to order some, but i lost the contact info. Thanks Willie

    Talk to your local street department. I would bet they would come out with thier line paint or maybe give you some. If you need some sparkle, add some fine crushed glass or glitter and it works just fine. Probably a lot cheaper.

    just use some yellow marker paint. tape off the lines and start to paint. No need to get all fancy and technical.

    Why reinvent the wheel?



    Just paint a 12 X 12 inch "T" stripe where the left rear and front wheels go and you will be set.

    Most State DOT's use a roll-out reflective tape for temporarily marking lanes in constuction zones, before paint goes down. Stop at a DOT garage and see if they can spare a used roll with a little bit left. We've found that it stands up to a month or two of high-speed construction zone traffic, but lasts for YEARS in a fire station, plus it's got a bit of reflectiveness, making it easy to see/follow while backing in.

    The temp tape like DFD says works wonders, and the DOT people have always been helpful to us.

    They even do this thing, where they leave traffic cones out on the road for us to pick up and use!

    If nothing else, go to the hardware store, get some masking tape, small rollers, and ask for yellow (or whatever color you want) paint and if they can mix some reflective material into it. The chalk a line, mask it off, and fling some paint. The "T" shaped marks, whether you run the lines all the way down the bay or not, are beneficial, too.

    This is a very good idea.

    It also gives you the option of removing the tape instead of chiseling up the paint if you need to make a change later on.

    We've had the tape last a whole construction season, it should last a long time in a firehouse.
    We do not rise to the occasion. We fall back to our level of training.
