Did you tape up to the edge of the reflector or did you try to tuck a bit of the tape into the edge?
No bother at all. I was probably overly cautious with the masking, I think I covered about 3/4 of the hood, half the front bumper, all of the two front wheels and of course the entire quarter panel on both sides. I did my best to tuck the tape into the gaps between the reflectors and body as much as possible. Once I got it masked off I just roughed up the surface with sandpaper to get good adhesion with the paint.

$350 is effin' bananas.
