Finally done, has a bit of orange peel, surprisingly its about the same as a new f150, yes i did try to get some pictures of it next to a new one at a dealership, unfortunantly they didnt have a tourch red single cabs on the lot, but the one thing i am having trouble with is the masking tape i used to cover all the chrome trim around the door handles windows, has decided not to come off, like there is no way it is stuck on there i tried peeling it off and some areas come off but others its just superglued on and leaves a really bad sticky mess, any ideas of what i can do, and by the way a cutting blade will not work i am dealing with chrome!!

either use a good wax/grease remover or mineral spirits. That should melt the glue. Once the sun/heat melts that glue it's really tough to get off.

That looks really good! Especially the reflection off of the hood. It reminds me of a first-gen Lightning. A plastic scraping blade might help, in combination with the above suggestions. I think you can probably get away with using a razor blade if you're careful.

If you use ANY kind of chemical make sure you protect your new paint or you will be doing part of it over again. Don't ask me how I know, please.

A rag and some paint thinner or lacquer thinner CAREFULLY rubbed should take it off or maybe a plastic razor blade. I have even heard about using 0000 steel wool but have NOT tried that so I wouldn't recommend that.
