    Where do I buy wire insulation from?

    Is there a replacement for the black tape-like-thing that wraps round the wires inside the car.
    Or is duct tape the only option?

    I used this stuff for interior wires

    And maplin do self amalgamating tape for engine bay wires, real good stuff if you use it properly

    Might get each cheaper, I'm sure I paid less than £9 for the tape at maplins...
