3M automotive refinish ‘233’ masking tape, just finished using a bunch
on my Creature cabinet project. Well actually my brother (restores
vettes) uses it… I just “borrow” rolls from him! Works great.
Whatever you do don’t cheap out with masking tape, there’s a huge
difference between the good stuff and the crap like “Tuck” tape that
is thin, gooey, and sticks like cement if you leave it on for more
than a day.
