spraying the wrap with high temperature spray paint until it's saturated work for me. I used flat black.

Thanks
I check it once in a while, and it's holding up great. I can see where rocks, etc... hit it, and leave tiny pits, but there's no tape lifting, or tearing. The tape is just aluminum, and adhesive, and doesn't get very hot over the wrap.
I liked the idea of covering the tape, and sealing in air to buffer the heat, and keep the tape from trapping moisture, and dangerous oil.

Re: Exhaust wrapped all the way back

Fowljesse...since you are using aluminum tape on the exhaust...
Changing the resonance....sound waves...
deadened by adhesive...
then alpha particles...
are repelled by the aluminum shielding...
Argonne National Laboratory....will verify the physics involved...
What you could do now...
is use the aluminum tape on all the coolant hose clamps...
You should notice a slight decrease of coolant temps...
only slightly better performance.
Also cover the negative battery cable end...
where it bolts to whatever...not the entire battery cable...
just the exposed cable end and bolt.
Takes about 15 minutes.
