trim and window removal??

Post by $uperJoe on June 13th 2010, 12:42 am

since i have read the forums here and upgraded my idea of how a rolled on job can look 100 fold i need to stick with the quality seen here .i will pull my handles since that is easy but are you guys pulling windows and rubbers as well or just taping off and go??
i will roll my windows in the front down but since its a van i have 4 large windows that will not move. i dont want to have a blue line at the seam of a red job and a window?

Just mask off the edges joe, i removed alot of trim for the first few coats, but ended up putting it back on since theres no over spray etc.

For the windows i just masked the rubbers, and was done.

One tip on rubber that touches paint. Lift the rubber with a nice wide flat blade and tuck some string/twin/cord under it all the way around. This will lift the rubber off the painted surface and allow you to get paint just under it. Then when you remove the string, the rubber lies OVER the new paint making a clean looking job.

No pictures now, but I will take some next time I do it. The thickness of the string depends on how high you can lift the rubber. Higher is better.
