Take the red, and make it white. Then you'll know how mine looks.

All of it, or just the black?

I rattle canned all of mine. Being unemployed makes it easy to dedicate a lot of time getting the tape perfect.

Looks great Sarah, but that'* a dangerous thing to do. Once you get the cover looking like you want you will start thinking about how nice red protective sleeves for all your wiring would look better than black, then how good red ignition coils and wires would look, then ....

It will drive you crazy. Ask Dan.
