Paintable plastic sheeting

Maybe I have led a very sheltered life but I just discovered paintable plastic sheeting while brousing through the SPI forum. This is the greatest stuff since sliced bread. Sherwin-Williams had their brand on sale for 29.95 for a roll 16X350 feet. this stuff almost makes masking fun Yeah, I know that is a stretch. I can't help but wonder though, what other new innovations have escaped me.

I bought Sherwin Williams part number MP90907HD. Norton also makes it under the name Norton Blue Sheeting.

Ray, I looked it up. It is large inexpensive plastic sheeting. What's different, is that the paint sticks to it, so it doesn't flake off and fall into your paint job. Also, it is clingy which helps it stay where you put it.

Wow! This has been around for well over 20 years. Usually has 2 sides, one side will allow paint to stick to it, the other not so much.

Don't be making fun of me and my rock LOL. I don't know why I never knew about it. Probably because I have always built cars as a hobby. Had I been around the trade more I am sure I would have known about it. As I said in my OP, it makes me wonder what other neat "tricks of the trade" I have missed. I do know this. Of the 12 to 15 cars I have built over my life it sure would have saved a lot of grief.

It only takes once to learn not to use regular plastic.

John, not only is this stuff on a long roll (we use hundreds of feet of this stuff a week here) there is also a "car cover" shaped one! Only painting one fender? Throw the car cover plastic over it and it will cling to the car, cut out the area around the fender and tape it down at the edge and shoot your fender.

Thanks for asking Ray. You guys make me feel better. I thought for a while I was a complete idiot and the only one in the world that didn't know about it.

Here is a link showing a fellow taping a trunk opening with it. After seeing this I ran down to get some. It is really great.

This stuff is really great for making masking quick as well as sealing the part so debris does not fly out while.
