I am delivering a car I am selling to Hamilton, ON next week and am using an open trailer to tow it there. I want to protect the paint while towing it down, does anyone have a recommendation for the best painters tape to use? Ideally I would use some form of track tape but I may not be able to obtain any before I leave next week. If anyone has extra that they would be willing to sell please let me know!!

    I would only trust 3m products. As the car will be cold adhesion may be an issue. Id find out if any body shop supply has the shrink wrap Ive seen some cars wrapped in.

      you can get a car cover for like $80 from Canadian tire. obviously not going to be the greatest cover in the world at $80, but will be better than tape or something for protecting the entire car from road spray.

        I feel like there would be a hug potential for scratches with a cheap car cover.

        Is there a wind deflector you can purchase for your trailer?

          Haven't felt them but reviews say they're a soft material and the description says triple layered polypropylene to prevent scratches.

          No idea. Just seems like a better option than taping an entire car with tape.

              Swing it by a boat shop and have them heat shrink wrap it like they would a boat going into winter storage.

                Thank you for all the input guys, VPS actually ended up having a spare roll of Xpel Tracwrap that they were willing to sell to me. I will most likely have extra that I will be posting for sale if anyone needs.
