I'm painting a black border around my boat's deck using Interlux Brightside. It's masked with 3M FineLine tape I picked up at the auto parts store.
Is retaping between coats necessary to keep the paint from bleeding underneath, or to keep it from tearing away when the tape is removed? I remember seeing this step recommended somewhere.
It was definitely a chore getting the tape on, getting it to follow a decently fair curve, and making the semicircular cuts at the bow and stern where the tape comes together. That's an effort that I'd grudgingly repeat if I had to, but one I don't want to undertake unless I have to.
So glad to finally be putting the finish on this boat! I only wish it were July.
