Just for giggles, sometimes when you're on amazon, change the .com to .ca and hit enter.

The same product up here is $104.00. But they ship it free though...
Ouch. I understand. I'll bet it is the same. The sheating I have is thin also but it is stretchy and does not tear easily. I think you will like it. Especially for door openings and the like.

boothboy I am in the process of masking the full body of my Ford Van. I have to paint the roof so I can sell it. Anyhow yesterday I found the same type of plastic sheeting John and the rest of Body Guys have been talking at Home Depot in the paint dept. It has the same properties that have been mentioned. Paint sticks, clinging and so on. I'm not sure if its the same thickness, but I'm going to try it out. It's pretty thin.

Here's what I bought.

3M 99 in x 90 ft x .375 mil Hand-Masker Masking Film-MF-99 - The Home Depot

I'll let you know how it works. Love that clingy feature!!

( Yeah I know, you never believed I work on cars!)

You say that like I've never tried it without paper

deadbodyman I always used the plastic to bag a car before priming. It took a long time before I trusted it for paint without paper first. But I find using both paper AND plastic is best, Paper has its place.
Back in the early 90's I worked at a shop that was paperless it certainly worked well it was the first time I did it that way but I caught on Quick. The only problem I saw was you need 1 1/2" tape and at 5.00 a roll it was costly, we burned right through it. It sticks to glass with static electricity you just bag the whole car, smooth it out and cut out the windows and such with a razor, tape them off then remove the rest." reverse taping it worked very well. but using paper AND plastic is a little cheaper if your concerned with dollars like I am.........Oh and especially John. The "frugal master"
I don't know ,John I do bust your but but I think I got you beat on frugalality. LOL.

I bought mine at a Sherwin Williams Auto body supply store. If you want, I can get you the brand name. I know 3M and Norton both offer it also.

I have never had any issue that made me wish I used paper around it. Maybe I will one of these days but so far it has worked flawlesly.

Not a wrinkle anywhere that could trap dust. I could not wait to buy some and have really fallen in love with it. As you know it is the absolute perfect product if you want to paint your door jams with the body.

Just in case there is anyone here who does not know what Mike is referring to. The paintable sheeting is a product that is treated so paint sticks to it. DO NOT try that with hardware store sheeting. The over spray will blow off and you will have the biggest mess of your life.

BTW, it was less than $30 for 16x350' roll. (store brand)
