You can see theres still some tape on the lights & stuff. I think it turned out good though.
I tried using the blue tape on windows and things once, but i found that it doesn't hold the paper well enough. Especially when the painting process takes place over multiple days (or longer) the wind comes along and tends to rip the paper off.
Blue is obviously the only tape you want to put over fresh paint (green..i'm not sure what that's for, perhaps it's low adhesive like blue?)
There are different adhesion levels of white masking tape. Some is high tack, low tack, or anywhere in between. Some of the masking tapes have the adhesion level printed on the packaging.
