The only body tape I will use. I use it mainly to tape off trim/rubber etc prior to a polish or correction. It is both economical in terms of cost, and the ability of this tape to seamlessly conform to complex curves and hold throughout the work day is incredible. Plus it peels off easily when you need it to without any residue.

Tape is tape, right? Wrong. I resisted purchasing this product as I thought I could get the job done cheaper with big box stores painters tape. I was sorely mistaken. It was like a bad marriage, I kept hoping it would get better and work out. Brief moments of hope were interspersed with massive amounts of pain. I bit the bullet, filed for divorce, paid the money and grudgingly moved on. 3M tape is the stuff. It sticks very well, I can run the DA over it and it doesn't budge. It follows curves and contours well and releases cleanly and easily. Where have you been all of my detailing life. Cons: premium cost
