Default Parma paint masks

Is there a good ay to keep paint masks from lifting from the shell when going over the the detailed portions of the inside of the shell to prevent bleed through?

I'm not quite following ya greaser...what exactly do you mean? are you saying when your making sure the edges are sealed tight that the other portions of the mask are trying to raise up?

When placing the masks over the details of the body, i.e. door creases, fender creases, window edges......thing like that. When I try to place a section of mask over this type of feature on the car while attempting to keep the mask in a straight line, the mask becomes "tight" or "stretched" and begins to seperate from the body leaving an air gap that allows paint onto the area that was masked off.

Ah ok now I understand. The best way to lay a mask over a detailed area like that is to lay the one end of the mask down and then when you are placing the rest of the mask over the door crease for instance, sort of "roll" the mask down over that area with your finger. You want to kind'a lay the mask back over your finger or even hold the free end of the mask straight up in the air with your free hand and then use your other hands index finger to press down the mask a little at a time. Dont try to just lay the entire mask over the door crease or detailed area all at once because it will be to tight just like you said.

thats the way i do it and it works good for me but if you still have a problem then a little heat from a hair dryer and a little finger pressure will also help to smooth it out.

also, i was having trouble with this yesterday on my nitro st 15, but all you have to do where those small creaces are is run a credit card or something stiff along the tape when you place it
