What tape to use?

Hey, just wondering what tape is recommended when masking areas inside the light prior to painting.

I've used green painter tape many times in the past and always it has removed some of the chrome finish of halogen reflectors, leaving a splotchy finish.

no tape, only post-it brand sticky notes. ANY type of painters tape, even the low tack stuff, will pull off the chrome.
