Vanquish side stripe masking

Have any of you anodizers managed to get some vinyl cut to mask the side stripes? I've tried cutting some on the gun by hand in order to peel it back off and scan, but my cuts are real janky and look horrible on the computer.

I'm just trying to help my friend get my gun anodize finished.

I've attempted it before but as I recall, there is very little material on the top of the eye cover and the lines go up hill as they meet the eye cover. It's tricky for sure. The closest I got was by laying a piece of paper over the body and rubbing a pencil over it. Still wasn't up to my standards. Good luck

Yeah.. My cuts were so janky
I might try with some clear mask again.

I'm wondering if the image could be extracted from photoshop. I need a really high quality picture of either the filthy rich vanquish, or the brown and orange brad mccurley one. Just something that I could use the lasso on to extract that shape.

Yah I tried some of that on the gold one but my graphic skills aren't that great.

I've cut vinyl for anodizers before in the use of masking. If you're just wanting stripes I don't see why that would be hard to do at all.

Gotcha. That looks like a possible market for a new sticker kit.
