    If your labels are peeling, once you pull out your gaffer, the label will come off together with the gaffer tape.

    might as well profit from a skill which I picked up years ago and then realized was useless unless one was a bling bling beng .....

    fastest way is to do it the Paste and Cut way ...... takes too long if you do it the Measure, Cut Shape and then Paste way

    p/s hi TS ..... just remember the tape will start de-threading and stink to high heavens after several weeks of constant use from accumulated sweat absorbed

    I once did the same to a hood of a rather un-common lens (it had a silver colored plastic hood) and when I peeled off the gaffer to put on new tape, it peeled off more paint .... doh!
    So take note
