    I want to tear everything ever to pieces right now. GODDAMNIT!! I'm trying to do a custom Mustang in green with black racing stripes (just like my gf's car)...

    I just finished doing the stripes on the car. I unmasked the roof & windshield assembly to see whether the paint had taken.

    It had taken PERFECTLY. I had 2 PERFECT, absolutely CRISP black stripes down the lime green top of the Mustang.

    Then I remask the thing so I can paint the windshield wipers. I used regular (3M?) blue masking tape.

    When I pulled back the masking tape, IT TOOK THE STRIPES WITH IT. MY PERFECT PAINT APP IS RUINED AND I HATE EVERYTHING EVER GARRRRRRR!!!!!!!

    Note to everyone else: NEVER NEVER NEVER glosscoat a project AND THEN put Krylon Fusion on top...it just becomes a thin, film-like layer on top of the previous paint.

    stupid stupid stupid...

    Ouch! I hate masking, and I always get a real feeling of accomplishment, when it comes out well. That would put me into kill mode, too.

    All I can think of would be to try model paint, over the Fusion.
