    When you are putting on lead tape and you screw up a little bit and take it back off it gets all wrinkley does anybody know how to avoid this. I know its not a big problem and all i just think it looks better without the wrinkles thanks in advance for the help.

    Only solution I can think of is make sure you put in on the way you want to so you won't have to take it off.

    It's unavoidable really, I removed it quite a bit in the start, and as you take it off it gets wrinkly because of the strong glue and the tearing-motion.

    lead tape will straighten out with a little elbow grease... i use a smooth object or something that rolls easy, (kind of like a rolling pin idea) and with enough pressure roll the lead straight.

    rub a coin over it. that should smooth it out some. just try not to scratch your frame.
