Pricewise, one is better off buying it from the OEM.

Would give 4 stars because of price. I can’t because it works really well when you use 3M adhesive promoter with it.

I applied the 4 gloss black to the leading edges of my Cherokee wings and tail. Looks great and makes bug clean up a breeze. The gloss black makes it look like there are fake de-icers on the leading edges. It can be a serious challenge to apply (wish it was thicker) but it looks great once you get it down and bubbles removed the syringe as directed.

Q: Is this tape shiny clear or clear / frosted? Last time I saw this tape it was frosted, I need clear (shiny).

The tape is translucent / clear, but is not crystal clear and shiny.

Q: The Accessories tab shows 2 other products. Are these needed to apply the tape? Or is the tape self-sticking?

The tape will have a liner on the backing, which is either brown, white or clear. You can peel the backing off and the tape will have adhesive to stick on a clean surface. The items in the accessory tab can be used to help apply the tape, and help with adhesion, but is not necessary.

Q: Procedure for removing old 3M 8672 tape and adhesive?

There isn't a written document with removal procedures for this tape, but in general, if the tape does not peel right off, a scrapper is used to get the tape off, then an adhesive remover cleaner is used to take off any adhesive left on the surface, then a solvent/cleaner, to clean and prep the surface for the new tape.

Q: Can this tape be used as protection in the leading edge of a propeller? Or for a propeller is best to use 3M 8561?

It is not recommended to be used on propellers. The 8561 has been used on some experimental propellers. The Prop Guard products we offer are better suited for propellers.

Q: I see that 09-01639 is still in the paper catalog. Can I still order that? I really dont need a whole 36 yd roll

Unfortunately part # 09-01639 is no longer manufactured and we cannot supply it.

Q: When ordered by the foot, does the tape come in individual 12 pieces or at the length of feet ordered?

It ships as a continuous length of feet ordered.

Q: Can 3M polyurethane tape 8672 be used over vinyl?

It can be installed over vinyl but it may damage or remove if you needed to remove it.

Q: Is this product FAA approved to use over paint cracks on a fabric airplane?

It is not FAA approved.
