I have seen on many hotrod shows where people are doing custom paint jobs, flames, graphics, etc....I see them using the narrow tape to lay down their flames etc. then they strech this white plastic-y rubbery paper over the entire area. Then go back with a sharp blade and cut along the middle of the tape and then peel off the area so they can lay down the paint. This leaves the rest of the area already "taped and papered off" It makes prep time fly...What the hell is that white plastic-y rubbery paper.....I want some!!!

Mike its vinyl. Relax take a pill, no second thought take two they're small. Vinyl masking can be bought at almost all decent paintshops. Good stuff. Matter of fact most real high class upscale shops have a vinyl machine that you use with your computer. You imput the desighn into the computer and the computer sends it to the machine and your vinyl and desighn comes out pre cut and ready to squeegie on for painting. Many still do it by hand though, time consuming, but worth it.
