Jabe, as frustrating as it is, that is going to be one sweet lookin' Javelin when you're over this hurdle. Keep at it!

i use the cheap green painters tape, i tried the 3M, didn't find a huge difference....i do all my edging first with 1/4", flexes around radiuses real nice, then i mask off of it, trying to keep minimum tape touching the finish.........

and on a not so nice note.......i can not express my feelings on here, for the choice of words would have me banned for life.......even the missus is steering clear of me today........
i know what happened, i thought i had sanded down far enough, but there was some residue of some of the first clear coat i used to seal the first coat........respraying activated it and lifted the new coat of bronze...........crap happens.....
going out to uncover Oscar, to put a smile on my face...... i will deal with the cowl issue another day


Neil. This is a minor setback for you. We've seen your work.

The lettering is integrated with the chrome. its all one piece so a masking or rubbing operation will be required.

I'd say stick to wood work, my cobby friend, BUT I have seen your paint skills.
Keep going....B)

This is what I'm using. Works really well. I clean up the excess pretty much as Jabe suggests.
