Automotive Masking Tape Techniques Video

We have seen a number of complaints where people tried to tape off a small square and limit the primer or aerosol touch up paint to the tiny square. As soon as you remove the tape, you can see the lines, and it's a hard thing to recover from. See if you can attempt to limit the tape lines to masking off adjacent panels. If you have to tape something off mid-panel, try to not spray the paint directly against the tape edge. If you notice a break in the body line you might be able to get away with "backtaping" to soften the tape-line effect.
