When it comes to tape, watch what you buy. Like everyone stated, the blue is housepainters tape, used for masking up baseboards, door trim, etc. Yellow is general masking tape and will leave a residue on a car. Advanced, AutoZone and those places sell the green auto painters tape, but it is a huge ripoff. The quantity is just about half of what you get at a jobbers for the same price or more. They put the tape on a larger diameter cardboard roll so the outside looks almost the same size
