Liquid Electrical Tape

This is a new item for me but maybe you guys have already been using it. Its made by performix. Its a liquid electrical tape. I've been using it on the bike where I can see some wire rub and thining out the plastic or where plastic is worn away from rubbing. Its a lot easier to use then electrical tape in those tight areas. So i've been using this liquid electrical tape to cover up the worn part of the wire and then securing it with ties. Its been a real time saver.

Harbor Freights has a deal on it. You get a spray and the brush on type for $7. Normally its about $7 each. Here is the link to the brush on one.

I have not seen the spray on stuff, but have been using the brush on liquid in both black and red for a couple of years. I usually put on 2 or 3 coats, and let it dry for a few minutes in between. It seems like it is pretty durable.

The spray is not on the harbor freights website but I saw it at the store. Here is a link to the spray if someone wants to just check it out.

Yep - got me a bottle of the black and I love it. Makes you feel a little dizzy if you breathe in the fumes as you're applying it too.
