I thinking looks great Jim.  How long did it take you to mask that out and paint it?  With drying times it must have been weeks.

Thank you David, Terry, and Carl.

Masking and re-masking took a couple of hours.  Next time I know to cut the tape much thinner.  I used HOK kandy paint so drying time was miminal.

Very nice paint.  I have also wanted to try one of these, but I have a difficult time envisioning where the tape needs to go in order to get a negative color.

I like the way you did the paint fades on the side of the body.

Always enjoy seeing people experiment with tape and paint, colours chosen work well together.
