Mask the areas that require fineline tape first. Mask the rest of the repair and backup the fineline with creped tape. Protect any nearby moldings with trim masking tape.
Ensure that the car is completely dry prior to applying plastic sheeting. Mask entire vehicle with plastic sheeting. Cut out the repair area with a razor blade. Tape the plastic sheeting directly to critical masking edge.
After painting, remove the masking tape at a 90-degree angle to the vehicle’s surface.
