I haven't ever used the original MB outfit to do hub caps but it has to be light years better than those crappy rubber do dads. Totally useless junk and not worth the bother at all.

 The mainstay is to use fine line tape and mask them off.

I agree - i used a special, blue masking tape that is a little more flexible than the usual stuff and cut it to fit with a scalpel
