Default New Guy here, question about painting lexan bodies

I am rather po'd right now. I just spent quite a bit of time designing and masking a decent flame job on a body. Using contact paper was reccommended to me by a somewhat knowledgable person. Well, frankly, it sucked. The paint did not stick to the paper and was it was very difficult to get the mask off correctly. A little help please. I don't want to ruin another car body and waste my time. Any advice would be great. Thanks

I was told about a product called "liquid mask"
Maybe someone will explain it a bit better that has used it but, you spray it in ,cut your design,paint and then peel it out.
I was rather impressed but have yet to find it

That stuff works great, Been a few years since I did a car body but that is what I used, Just make sure you lightly sand the lexan before painting so it will stick better.
