    need advice

    Any tips on the best way to tape off a clear mask? it is pretty hard to see the mask (since it's clear). I am using some 1/4" tape in most spots..wondering if some experts have tips on how to 'follow the mask' with the tape

    Why do you feel the need to tape off the mask?

    One of the ways you can avoid getting wax in the crease is to apply the wax in a straight line, moving in the same direction as the film. You can use the same method to remove any wax that has dried in the crease. I used to use this method on the vinyl pin-striping on my old car.
