Your base shouldn't pull up if the primer is properly prepped. However you can get tape residue transfer on the base if you pull too tight of an angle. i|

3M "Fineline" tape will return a super sharp line, lifts easily, and goes around corners great. If you can't find it then any high quality auto grade masking tape will suffice. When removing it pull it back onto itself rather that straight up. Do not be tempted to use store brand masking tape .

Well, if you look at the p-sheet it will have a "to tape" time... there you are.
Old guy's tip- tape the tape to your shirt or pants first, then tape the basecoat. It won't stick as well that way.
Remove the tape as soon as the stripes tack up.
