Sorry, didn't know where else to put this. Anyway, about half a year ago, I decided to shadowline my trim. I did it the "proper" way; painting. Problem is, it wasn't really painting, but more like spraying, because seeing as my car was bought in the Ghetto part of this city, it has to have ghetto solutions (okay I admit, I couldn't afford a proper paint job ). So, I taped off the entire sides of the car to prep to paint. Spray away I did and the result was pretty good. Fast forward half a year. There are multiple chips in the paint and some sections the chrome is just oooooooozing out from under the black spray paint. I read around and found that some people used tape to shadowline their trim pieces. That's fine and dandy, but I can't seem to wrap my head around a proper technique for it. I've got about half of my driver's side trim blacked out with tape (took over 3 hours to get this far!). It looks pretty silly; I had to cut the pieces of tape into small bits so I could properly stick them onto the trim and push out the bubbles as I set the tape in place. Needless to say, minor bubbles still formed and it looks quite stupid from up close. You can't see any imperfections whatsoever from a distance of over 5 feet, but it's still rather embarrassing to have these "sections" of tape bulging out from under another when viewed from up close. I don't know how better to describe it, so I will take pictures tomorrow, but my main question is this: Does anybody have a technique for properly applying blackout tape so it looks like one long piece instead of multiple pieces WITHOUT any bubbles forming underneath?
