I need some tape that stretches better to make curved lines.
How did you rip the tape when done. Coz i was trying to do eyelids on my headlights but i always rip some edges when i remove the tapes. Thanks

dango when doing your headlights you have to remove the tape right after you finish spraying. That is how i did my taillights. Perfect lines:

You put it on thick in a good solid coat and remove the paint right then. if you want to add additional coats or thickness you must retape each time.

You have to remove it while it is still semi-wet, when the plasti-dip has set a bit and not too sticky. Make some pull-tabs, so it will be easy to peel back. Just start peeling the tape and see how the line is setup. Good Luck.

Me and my girlfriend just finished up plasti-dipping the SVT rims, cleaned them before and painted the inside as well.
