Cutting down air drag?

I've heard of a few techniques to cut down drag with painter's tape, does anyone have anything to add to this like spots to add this to and how much? I tried taping gaps like front bumper and fender area and the sunroof. It made maybe a 10th of second of difference in my lap time. Am I doing it wrong? Or is tape really that minor? and how do you know where to tape on the front bumper mesh? BTW Please show diagrams or a picture

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.
