    Great video and descriptions of the tapes and characteristics of them. One question is, I have seen a bright yellow tape for what I thought was auto body usages? Thanks and Best Wishes.

    also, try and hang the tape by the inner cardboard, rather than lay it on its side! dirt and dust wreaks HAVOC with the very edges of the tape , and you could get paint and solvents creeping under the tape! the cleaner the tape stays the better, shops can be dirty as hell for tape! I keep mine in baggies to help with dirt!
