    thanks . i kinda figured paint would melt them. i have been told the lime green coleored noodles were easy to see but i can only find a couple here and a couple there . i guess i better start gathering them up as i find them.

    To me, those white noodles look just like sunlight reflecting off the waves. You just about can't see them until you run over them. I'll go along with Jtrew and state I have found the yellow noodles to be more visible at a distance.

    I run yellow and orange noodles primarily. I wouldn't mess with white noodles UNLESS it is state law (like in TX).

    slabmaster..I ran a reflective tape on the top of mine. During the sunny days of summer they really sparkle. You could always use duct tape on them and spray the duct tape.:cool2:
