Mask off what ypu don't want to paint. Quite easy to get overspray. Shake can till arm goes numb. Shake more... spray the area you want, focus on the middle first then the edges. Spray a nice coat and give it a minute or two. I then spray it again but make sure its not too thick to run. Then get the tape off while its still wet. If it dries it will bond to the tape. Let it dry for 3 hours before hitting the streets!

Yeah i just did my rims the other day. It's got some runs so I have to go back over it. But it's fun and easy to paint/remove. Plus it looks great. Just make sure you tape off your lights really well if you do the deck lid.

The worst thing that could happen is as your spraying a meteor hits the car and sprays your face andyou can never see again. Worst case scenario!
