I did grow up in Texas you know. One should always have a good sized nice knife, there might be cheese cake...Looking good. A razor blade works fine for trimming tape, it's the Bowie knife over kill? Are you going to clear coat? Adds a nice protective finish.
I am going to clear coat it but after the tire swap and I take care of any touch up needed.
