Default Is Bob Dively Liquid mask really the bees knees?

I want some thoughts from the bench experts here. I'm about to start work on a few new bright bodies and No way my tape skills are gonna cut it when it comes to all the detail stuff. Is this Bob Dively stuff really up to the task? Act basically as overspray film that's just peelable? Give me your thoughts and experiences from real world use.

I've used it. It works great. I don't use it often though because for 99% of the bodies I paint, tape is quicker and it's easier to make straight lines with.

I'll be using it to mask new bright raptor body. The grill, Tailgate, hood riser, etc. You see any issue in the future getting it to peel? or have you had any issue on hardbodies?

I have not personally used it, but it's commonly used for complex paint jobs - there are some good youtube vids you might want to check out.
Below is a body done by a 'pro' painter here locally, he uses masks exclusively. He did say it's extremely difficult to cut out for cursive type lettering though.
I thought this was a killer paint job on a buddy's rig:

The guy that paints my bodies uses Fasmask from Parma. Seems to work great for him.

Ive used it many times, but sadly can't seem to find it currently. Bitty Design seems to be it now.
When I first started using it I brushed on 4 coats, waited forever for it to dry. I then started spraying it with a touch up gun, 3 coats dry in 4 hours, and even. I never had peel or lifting issues with it, one trick is to imbed a small strand of thread in those small spots, allows you to pull that small section after cutting

Dively and fasmask are toast, that AMain link will get you to bitty design. Itís all the same idea, I still have the last of divelys. I liked it as it went on blue, clears when dry

My painter orders Fasmask directly from Parma.

Yup, That is the only place for any Parma products. I went to order 7 or 8 bottles of my favorite Faskolors and the shipping was $17.00 (a third of the order price) I passed and shot the rig with Tamiya.

From what I understand a messy divorce was the reason for Parma to almost disappear sadly.
