Anything to write on my cars paint?

My being the perfectionist I am, I want to get this new badge I got as straight as possible, so I am wanting to take measurements from a couple different directions and make off the points that I need.. What can I used to mark some points on the paint and not have it harm the paint.. I am thinking maybe a wax pencil?? Any ideas??

Thanks
Chris

What about some thin hobby masking tape... 1/8" or so?

Would a grease pencil hurt the paint? You know, the kind used on windows...
