I hate the stuff, I really do. The mess it leaves behind is reason enough for me to get things fixed right ASAP. Tha being said my GF's Benz got the front bumper cover clipped and subsequently torn off. She had to get to work that day so I got some black duct tape and put it back together. Well one day became two became three etc. A year goes by!!!
Two particular days I recall while she had that car that at the time I didnt know whether to laugh or cry. We pull up to a fancy North shore steak house on Long Island, the parking lot has Bentleys, Rolls, Ferraris, etc. Here we are in this taped up Benz (the car was black at night you couldnt even notice, in fact even in the day it was not very noticable) and the tape decides to let go just as I hand over the keys to the valet
....a crowd is there to witness this.
Another day was at a wedding, it was a particularly hot sunny day, we were dressed to the nines, I come out only to have my cousin say, "I think someone hit your car..." Once again the tape let go, the whole bumper lay on the floor, I had to reassemble the car in the lot in a $3k Italian suit...I hate duct tape.
Oh, its also called speed tape, BTW.
