Flat stripes on gloss

I am thinking about putting some flat accent strips over regular glossy paint. What is the best way to get crisp lines so I don't have to pin stripe where the two meet? Should I pull off the masking tape before the flat is dry or wait until it drys? Any recommendations on the best type of masking tape to use? Anything else?

From my super-limited experiece with that...Id pull the tape off just before the paint becomes tack free. Just try to not stir up dust

3M Fineline tape for masking the edges, comes in different widths blue and green. Blue for round and curves, green for straight lines. Be extra tedious and make sure you go along your tape lines several times to make sure you dont have an edge that isnt perfectly tight.
