After Mike was sure every inch of the tape edges were tight to the body, the first coat of color was applied. The base of the entire flame area was sprayed with silver after a thin coat of blue was sprayed just on the flame's outer edge. Once the paint was properly flashed (dry to the touch), Mike followed the flame outline with another line of 1/4-inch tape, butting it up to the original edge. This left a clean 1/4-inch outline of blue to contrast the black and the colors in the flames, just like pinstriping.
