Masking Curves?

So I've been reading tons of threads on using DIY bedliner all over trucks but I can't seem to find an answer to how I can mask a two or three inch strip above my wheel wells? I plan to use Duplicolor bed liner since its the only one I can find around town in a spray can.

I'm not looking for a show finish, just trying to keep the sand and salt from eating my rocker panels. I want the strip above my wheel well to match the curve of the wheel well itself.

So any ideas? Thanks ahead of time!

Use several strips of narrow tape and build up width. Using a wider tape won't allow you to follow the curve as well.

use painters tape( from auto body store). It curves easy. and start taping at the lip of the fender working your way out to the desired thickness..that way you will match the curve perfect.

Ah here we are

Ok so maybe your not doing flames on your yota but you can use a thin tape to start a curve using this technique then have a little room for imperfection as you add your normal thickness of tape.

Awsome replies! I really appreciate all of them. I know I was asking about wheel wells but after watching that flame video the sky is the limit!
