Hmmm... sealing panel gaps... materials?

So... I know the traditional material for random aero testing is usually painters tape, and I love the color against the color of my paint, but it simply isn't practical... It gets wet and then is tremendously difficult to remove...

What about electrical tape? would the thickness of electrical tape defeat the purpose of sealing the gaps? and does anybody know how long electrical tape will last on a car?

or if anybody else has a good idea? I really don't want to spend much and I don't want it to be messy, so no silicone or other goop.
