Painting Hood

I want to paint my hood, just the top of that center bulge, but had two questions:

1) what paint should I use? I've fallen in love with plastidip but is that the best paint for that job? Or would a spray on bed liner be a better way to go?

2) In taping off just the bulge, I am worried about taping a smooth curve around the rounded corners, any suggestions on how to do that near perfectly?

Any advice helps!

I painted mine with plasti dip about 3 months ago. Its holding up just fine. To get clean edges go to there's a lot of info there. The reason why I used plasti dip is cause I wasn't sure if I was going to like it that way if I didn't I could just peel out off. But I love the way it looks.
