If the car was unmasked 2 hours after painting it, then any or all of the other reasons for the paint coming off could be the reason. At this point, the main thing is you will know what to watch for when you repair the door...A razor blade can work if the paint has bridged but, you would need to be extremely careful and have a steady hand. Try pulling the tape away from the panel when your unmasking, that will solve most of your problems, especially if you unmask 2 hours after clearing.

As long as your satisfied, that's the main thing.
the maaco way is to let a sliver of the paint bleed onto the belt moulding so when you peel the tape you are not lifting it off the car. They got their hack work down packed I guess.
