Default Re: Need a few Painting Tips

Hey Junster,
Just a word of advice. DupliColor paint is great stuff and comes in almost any color you could want. However, their clear is not gasoline resistant. Look for an engine enamel clear or go to an automotive paint supplier for a good clear coat.
As for masking, try vinyl electrical tape. It forms well to compound curves and makes good clean lines. For tight corners you can slice it into thin strips and it will conform to very tight curves. Hope this helps and please send us some pictures of the finished tank.
