Masking is a very important part of the car bodywork repair process. This process is more difficult on certain parts of the vehicle such as the bonnet, doors, and the boot, especially if they have rubber seals. To eliminate this problem, MIARCO has designed the patented Chicane tape for these fiddlier areas, revolutionising the traditional way of masking vehicles.
It is much faster and easier to mask headlights with Chicane. Just follow the steps below.
Before you apply Chicane on the headlight, measure the length of the area to be masked, and tear off the amount of tape you need using the pre-cut lines which are marked every 20 centimetres. If you need shorter pieces, cut the tape with a Stanley knife.
Masking headlights with Chicane
The way to apply Chicane on the headlight varies slightly from standard applications. First, tear off the narrow part of the tape, as you will only need the reinforced section and the wide part.
When the tape is ready, insert the reinforced section between the headlight and the wing and slide the tape along. When it is in position, peel the protective strip off the wide part of the tape, and stick it down.
Repeat this process when you get to the headlight. Tear off the narrow part of the tape, insert the reinforced section between the wing and the headlight and slide the tape along until the entire area is covered. When the reinforced section is in position, peel the protective strip off the wide part of the tape, and stick it onto the headlight.
Chicane masking tape has three advantages that make it revolutionary:
- It saves time, reducing masking time by up to half.
- Excellent finish, preventing paint from getting inside the vehicle and blending cut-off lines to make them invisible.
With MIARCO’s Chicane tape, masking is quicker, more precise and more efficient. Join the revolution!
