Because you will get perfect lines with blue tape. PD isn't a permeant application. Any overspray rubs right off. Cleanest lines you can get on trim is by pealing not taping.

I think you are missing the point. Yes, the blue tape will get the job done... But frog tape works BETTER. So why not just use it instead?
And yes, its better to peel PD rather than tape when it comes to small trim. But like I mentioned earlier... when it comes to things like stripes on your hood, or other applications where you are not painting the entire surface of something and need clean tape lines... Frog Tape and peel when wet. No mess, no fuss, no redoing it afterwards.

Oh by the way, you mentioned that PD is temporary (usually a year if you baby it is what most people agree)... I thought people might be interested to know that I once dipped the whole hood of my friends BMW... Bought a big bottle of rubbing alcohol and microfiber cloth to prep the hood first, then used VERY light coats (about ten in total, the first 3-4 coats hardly showed the PD color.) Well, 2 1/2 years and 35,000 miles later it looks brand new. Its never been touched up. Been through weekly car washes and hes used a pressure washer on it multiple times. This doesnt mean its permanent by any means, but thats much longer than most expect out of PD. The difference between a good paint job and a great paint job is the prep work.

Re: calling all plasti-dippers......

because I am idiot and not talking about frog tape. Lol! I just looked at what I used in my garage and confused frog tape with 3M automotive tape (same green color). Same results as blue tape with that stuff and much more expensive.

I've used both frog tape and blue tape and never noticed a difference when spraying PD. I did my fender stripes the first time with blue tape and the second time with frog tape and they turned out the same. In my opinion, you don't need to spend the extra dollar or two.

Lol good point, the price honestly never even crossed my mind until you said something. We use it all the time for my work, so I just grab roles out of our bulk box for my home projects. It is a bit more expensive than the blue.

Wanna grab me a couple rolls and send them my way? Then I don't have to bend over at the counter for it. Lol
