      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

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.
