glowing steps

cheap and 1st mod 2day on my new trailer I put 3M photoluminescent tape on the front of my 3 steps and down the sides so they glow at night and also around the top and bottom of the grip on the assist handle and a small stip on the door handle

Have any pics?

Where did you get the tape?

Are you happy with the effect?
