I’m building an early Hemi and have the original valve covers with the raised “Chrysler Firepower” lettering. The covers are already finished with a polished aluminum powdercoat, and I want to highlight the lettering in a contrasting color. My question has to do with the best way to mask off the lettering, and what type of masking medium is best.
I see the sticky mickey masking paper and want to know if it is thin and flexible enough to get a clean line when I apply it over the lettering. I have also seen some stuff called “frisket” that is used in airbrushing. Would this be better?
If you have any other tips on how to paint the lettering, I’d like to hear.
