I have done this many times now, Jim is right, I will add a few tips
Use fine steel wool to clean the paint to remove any real imperfections, rust ect. Use a good cleaner after that to remove any traces of oil or old wax. I use Kleenze, aproduct to use prior to painting a car.
I then apply green auto tape and use an exacto blade to trim to the star.
the rest is simple. It is a tedious process but can make a world of diffrence.
