I used the regular stuff...it'll work. However, taking it back off was a problem in some areas. I probably would have been better off using the blue stuff, but to be honest I've seen body shops use regular masking tape for decades.., the blue stuff is relatively new and far as I'm concerned more of a marketing and profit ploy than anything else. Be that as it may, the blue might be helpful but having never used it I'd have a hard time making the determination!!
