    Protect your paint.

    Don't forget to tape off areas that may rub your body or tires. Keep that new paint looking good!

    It would make the vehicle very top heavy and flip over easily.

    You could also try the drywall tape and shoe goo.

    you have to paint it the same color as the color under the masking tape first the let it dry then paint it the color you want it so the first coat of paint bleeds through the tape instead of the second coat of paint. believe me because it works with model rockets too!

    There is a painters tape made by FROG Tape that works better than any other painters tape I have used. IMO, the best thing to use is Bob Dively Liquid Masking Film, brush it on (3 or 4 coats) then use a knife to cut your design out, light pressure 'cause you just want to cut the masking and not the lexan. Spray then peal as needed.
    There are a ton of vids on Utube 'bout this
