Re: Cool product (Audi use?)

I've used the liquid electrical tape (LET) all over the place on the rally
car: under the hood, coating wires exposed under the car, all manner of
connections inside the car, etc...  You need to mix it up really well as
the top is pretty much thinner after sitting for a day or so but the stuff
is really durable.  After Maine, I was looking at the spare wheel pickup
cabling and rocks had eaten off some of the cable sheathing but the LET was
intact with little scuff marks showing.  Also used it to coat the wires
when we put new lights on the trailer a while back.  Still going strong...  

It's particularly good when you want to waterproof/totally seal a
connection.  I goober it on the wire right where the shrink-wrap ends - to
seal the gap between the two.  Just went out and checked all the relays for
the 800 watts of light and they're all still intact.....
