Beware of bad stencil kits

These things should carry an expiration date like a gallon of milk. Just laid down a stencil for a 442 hood and had the worst experience I have probably ever had. First off when pulling the main white sheet off for the center square the stencil started breaking apart in tiny pieces that was the first sign, then it left globs of glue on the hood where it had to be sprayed. Had a real hard time getting that stuff off with wax and grease remover. Finally get it all off then proceed to spray the stripe. Next remove the stencil to clear the hood, and again all glue residue everywhere. Now I am scrubbing fresh basecoat with wax and grease remover, 2 hours later and had to go back and fix the fine stripe that was damaged from soooo much rubbing to remove this glue residue. A job that should have taken a few hours turns into an all day and night disaster all because the stencil was just too old. Beware...............
