Bill's right. I use a scriber along the trim lines before primer and paint. It makes trimming the BMF sooooo much easier.
Can't cut BMF nice and even?

I removed the foil from my 61 Impala and used the tape method and the scribe method. Both gave much better results than I first got. The tape was tricky to line up but easyer to trim, while the scribe method was the easier but my knife slipped once. I need to try the t shirt method to help brace the as holding the body on my right leg and cutting with the left hand isn't good good when the blade slips.
Thanks again for the great tips.

Fiskers makes a handle like that you can find in the stationary section at Walmart
And while you are there, don't forget the new pack of #11 blades. I can't stress how important a new blade is if you don't want to ruin your foil and paint. An old blade can get jagged and tear the foil or "hop" as you drag it along.
