Hi
I have had all the dash parts for my 71 rechromed, and I am now PAINFULLY masking and repainting the semi-gloss black. Does anybody have any tips or tricks to getting nice clean edges easily?

Mask the area to be painted (I know that sounds backwards, and it is), then apply a thin coat of vasoline to the unmasked area, remove the tape, paint, let dry. Wipe the vasoline off and you now have a very straight clean line.

fyi, prep the area to be painted first
