Tape is where a guy should never cheap out. My wife and I had a major argument when we first married over this, she bought some crap that wouldn't come off the roll without tearing. She took it back, with instructions from me to get 3M. She brought back some more cheap crap, the fight was on! I went to the store and bought the good stuff. I don't know if the stuff is overpriced or not, if i did bodywork for a living I may think so. But I do know when I go to peel it off, it comes off without lifting the paint, having to be scraped off, or generally taking a LOT of time to remove, I am a happy guy! I used their blue tape last, it was ok but had a few overspray spots I thought should have never happened.
