I stick with scribing with the back of a #11 blade, sitting in front of the TV. I never got a hang of the string method either.

i've never tried either of those ways, i still just use an (almost) brand new razor blade to cut.... works fine i guess........

i use string, but it takes really long, and like you said, doesn't cut straight lines when youre working in tight spots or just get careless. When that happens, i just sand down what i need gone, or fill in with bondo and sand.

i have used all three ways and they all make me happy with the string method of you slant it you can cover more area and it will be a straiter line i also like to use a dental scribe

I've tried the thread method & phucked up a cpl kits so I went back to using the back of a #11 exacto. Sometimes I'll use my saw ( like a lil jewelers hobby saw) once I get the line moving to where I wanna speed up the process. I have also learned to put some pinstriping tape just outside of my lines to avoid going off track. I've got that 3M stuff that I haven't been able to cut thru yet. So I highly recomend doin this. It saves you a lot of time mayn.

Peace

I scribe out the line a little deeper with a scribe, then i use the back of a #11 to start cutting, and finish with the string. Once you get the line deeper, the string makes quick work of it without many easy mistakes. i can prolly cut open a door (even around the window frame) in about 10-15 min.
