    Sorry for the delayed response!

    It's really down to the new paint exactly matching what's there. Even if the join is seamless if they're different colour's you'll still see it!

    Get yourself a circular buffing/polishing jobby from an auto parts shop. You can work through grades of abrasive paper to flatten down the surface during layers of primer and paint, and this'll be the tool to buff and polish the final layers of paint and lacquer to remove the "edges" that'll build up where the masking ends.

    It's all about prep and patience really though - good luck with it and get some photos up if it goes ok!
