For the last several years I've had good luck with silver paint pens. The Testors ones seem to work best.

I usually free-hand long straight edges, but use 3-M Fine line tape for the rest.

Experiment on some old bodies to get a "feel" for it first.

Pin-stripe tape works great too as you can turn corners with it.

Many body shops have leftover rolls they can't use.
