If that failed, I'd lay a run of 3M Fineline tape down the body to give myself a guide edge...but it should work. Don't be afraid to give it another go if it doesn't take the first time.

You could use the back side of an exacto blade down the body and create a crease for the BMF. My best advise it to make sure you use a brand new blade and use light pressure. Good luck
Yeah... What he said... and you could also lay down a piece of tape against the top edge, or very slightly above the trim, so your blade won't stray...(Like Gluhead suggested...)

Same here, when there is one to follow. He doesn't have one to follow.
I have never used a straight edge for long BMF runs, a brand new very sharp blade will follow creases just fine.
Speaking of blades, it really should be new. Most of the time the very very tip of a blade will get knocked off after a short time...and that's exactly the part that gets used in foiling. Also, I can't stand xacto brand blades. Excell blades are honed on both sides where most are only honed on one. It does help.
