Great thread.
I recently did the lower door edges and boot return lip on my car. They had suffered chipping over the years and surface rust had formed.
I used a Dremel to remove the rust and flatten the paint then used an airbrush to apply several light cots of 2k primer. The coats do have to be light and thin to flow through the airbrush. Once dry wet flatted with 1500 .
I then applied three or four light coats of thinned bas coat with two coats of lacquer on top.
It worked very well and showed me how useful that little tool is, so much so ,i I've bought a better one.
I could have spent more time on it for a topside finish but even where it is it looks great.

Masking tape - I know it has been said but use it! It's our best friend when it comes to things we don't want to paint ! ahah

Sorry to be a bit dumb, but could you show how the tape is applied to the outer part of the door! Is it just ran down firmly overlapping the edge or is it folded back too to create the soft edge?
