If you can find a supply of bomb-tape, you'll never go back to duck tape
again.  It's green, mil-spec stuff, but it's basically indestructable.
Last I checked it wasn't easily available, and I seem to have used my last
roll on the 914 before I got rid of it.  I know that I've patched
helicoptor exhausts with it, so it should hold up to an air box.
