Al, do you have to use special masking tape with this product?

Your post is excellent as well as the results. I have had people in the fabric section of stores suggest a spray-on material often but I never followed up trying the products  thinking a spray-on would be difficult to use on smaller parts. And thinking both  over spray as well as extensive masking off of areas being more hassle than the possible convenience of spray.
  
Your  results are excellent !!!!!!
  Is over spray and masking a problem?

I used the blue masking tape that you can buy at WM in the hardware section. I have used the Tamaya brand, but it is expensive and the results were the same. The good thing about this spray is that it does not "run" under the tape and pretty much sticks to the spayed areas.

Make sure you wash the part real good. I just used hand washing soap like Palmolive.

That looks to be the material of choice for me from now on.

On the work above, the edges  look so crisp, the wrinkles look real and the over-all texture is simply amazing.

My, that is nice.

You have convinced me totally.
