Not as long as you would think. Paint is quick masking takes hours.

Haven't seen any USGT photos lately. Probably won't get to race till May, but decided to paint a new body while it's snowing out, C5 Corvette.... At least I'll be ready.....

Yeah, that's the body I should have gotten instead of the 200mm #311.

Why am I so graphically challenged. Does anyone have a good place to buy mask or does everyone use the liquid? I never liked it

Years ago...many years...when I was airbrushing T-shirts, I'd frequently airbrush other things (tumblers, coffee mugs, leather goods, etc) for people. As much as I disliked using liquid mask, it does have its uses. There are times when, due to the physical shape of whatever you're painting, it can be difficult (or even impossible) to apply a sheet-based mask. A perfect example would be a sharply-curved concave or convex corner. It's situations like that where a liquid mask is your only real possibility. Like I said, I dislike liquid mask...but, there are times when it's your only realistic option to get done whatever you're wanting to accomplish.

First time painting a body. Based off the Red Bull Holden Car. to many hours using a vinyl cutter. Only stickers used are the Cadillac stickers.
