Striping paint job problem

Recommended Posts


Im in the middle of doing my first custom paint job, and it has a couple of stripes in it (NOT a Van Halen one, dont want eddie sueing my ass!)

What tape or material do i use that will not allow the paint to run underneath it? I though masking tape would do it, but it hasnt worked on my test spraying. Any tips to get the striping right?

Many thanks,

not for guitar work, but in the past i have used a real good blue colored tape when i was painting things like model kits and some spot jobs on bondo with the car, hell i dont remember who made it but it was better than that typical tan colored stuff, i think hes right it was 3m, i got it from the automotive section of walmart if i remember right, anyways, you might keep your eye out for that, good luck
