Thanks guys. I wanted to get rid of the homedepot look.
I wrapped over the aluminum tape so hopefully that will help too.
Also, the hose clap that is holding the wrap at the bottom doubled as a support. The screw part is holding it up so the pipe isn't sagging like it is in the first pic.
Haro, come on man, my mom is the coolest when it comes to christmas.

Thanks.
If you want to know about the pipe, it'* a 3.5" OD stainless flowmaster U bend that I cut and welded.
And I got the header wrap from ebay. It'* 2"x50' and I used all of it.
Here'* a link:
