I use it. Since I got a 32oz bottle from my dad I have been using it alot and learned how to make it as good as Bob Dively Liquid Mask.
Answers to your questions...

1. Yes, but Bob Dively Liquid Mask does not require as many coats and drys faster that Fasmask.

2. Of coarse, you can leave it on for a month if you need to.

3. Yes, liquid mask allows you to make clean lines. You just need to cut using the wieght of the X-Acto and your hand, don't apply to much pressure!!

4. For the Carbon Fiber effect I would check out... www.cfxpaintworks.com, they have many torutles and members to help you out.

Some other stuff...

Apply 5-6 coats of it. On each coat apply it a different way so coats intersect. Use a paint brush between 0.5-1 inches so you can get into hard to reach places and dip it into the bottle. Do not use a hair dryer or heat gun to dry it faster, it will warp and fog the lexan for some odd reason. Also it even can stick to the body like glue to it if you heat it, I have heard.

I have discovered Fasmask and most of you guys say Bob Diveleys is better. If this is true it must be fantastic !! I love the Fasmask and I only apply 3 coats and have no problem peeling it off. I dry it with a hairdryer and the lexan doesn't fog.
