Default HPI overspray film question...

I just bought a new HPI Rubicon body and I didn't want the fender flares and bumpers shiny so I painted the body the main color on the inside and then carefully trimmed the overspray film and removed it from the flares and bumpers then I painted the flares and stuff on the outside of the body hoping like hell that the overspray film is good enough to keep the paint from going through or seeping under it. of course I know it works for overspray but has anyone used it as a mask before? I am kinda worried about how its going to look when I remove the film

um....this was a bad idea. the paint melted the film making a big mess. NEVER DO THIS! now it's cleanup time.
