I also used Exterior type blue tape.  That shit is sticky, and I would not use it to mask off any freshly painted pieces with it.

If you ever have to clean most any adhesive from tape and such use a chemical you can get at any paint store and even Wall Mart called Naptha. It's the same thing as the lighter fluid you put in Zippo lighters. I use it all the time dealing with guitar paint jobs. It does not hurt the paint at all. Sticky stuff from old stickers no problem. It does a great job.

I don't know if you ever caught me saying this anywhere, but I worked for a number of years at the Fender Custom Shop.  :)  I'm very familiar with the stuff.  Works great on lacquer finishes, also. 

 

I still occasionally moonlight painting guitars for a local company here in So Cal, as well..

Glad to know a fellow Luthier, I'm painting a Mexican 62 style strat right now. Took off a lot of bulk and gave it a more 62 feel. Yes it's a life saver when wet sanding a guitar body. An old guitar builder turned me on to NOT using water when wet sanding on a guitar because the water will swell the wood causing crack's in the finish where there are screw holes and the Naptha does not, my guess is it is not drawn into the wood as much and it is constantly evaporating. Best tip I ever got in that use of it. Here is a couple of pics of the body.

My grandpa had one of those old gravity fed gas pumps when I was a kid. I love Tanker's garage it is much cleaner than mine.

When I got home on Sunday decided enough with his old tired 1800. Out it goes.

Pass that old tired L18 over here and I'll put it in my Goon.

That interior panel on the inside of the hatch has a wicked curve to it.  That backing board has to be condom-thin to work :)
