backtaping jambs - any pictures?

Can anyone direct me to or post some pictures of how to correctly backtape an edge to allow the paint to feather? I think I am understanding the process but I am the king of screwing the simple things up so some photos would be nice. Is ther any vidoes on youtube that give good info on this that you cn clearly see?

Heres another look at the 3M door aperture tape used in different situations where you wouldn't want a "hard" line

Wait err, there's a fly in my paint..

We used to double the tape over (stick it to itself)...so there's no hard-line/edge.
But when we sprayed, we sprayed at it (at a 90-degree angle), and not so the paint would blow up-under the "floating" edge (sorry I can't find the right words to use right now). It worked for us, but that was years ago (with the old enamel and lacquer paints). I've never sprayed the newer stuff, so I'm not sure if this would work.

What are you tring to do? I've back taped using 2" tape with good sucess. Put your tape down so you can roll about half of it back and paper from there. Put down enough paint to get coverage but keep it a thin as possible.Same thing we did 30 yrs ago with enamel. Still seems to work for me even on base clear jobs. Did the rear fender on my one ton gmc 8 yrs ago and its still holding up.

I have my doors, trunk lid, hood, and fenders off my car. I am about to spray the jambs and backsides of the trunk/hood/doors. Then I am gonna bolt it all back together, aglign everything again, and take it to a body shop to spray the outside of the car. If I do a good enough job spraying everything, I might give painting the whole thing myself a try.
