Use drywall Patch's....they have more criss cross action as apposed to the checkerboard of the Big roll tape.

Shoe goo ive seen remove the paint when and if it fall's off....so i use High Temp Silicone and it's never once failed me...like j_blaze14 said you will be tired of the scheme before the body's too beat to run any more.

Here's a Overkill jobby on a CRT.5 stock body which are prone to cracking well.....EVERY where.

I've used the aluminum tape once, the adhesive ate through my silver paint that backed up my candy color. so I will never use that again.

I've found that Nomex tape works the best, and then I apply shoe -goo everywhere else! And shoe -goo only eats the paint if it's 1. uncured, and 2. the paint is too thin!

I agree with shoe goo. It strengthens the body, a little heavier but saves a great paint job. If it does wear then you can smear some more on. Clear vinyl sticker from a sign shop works also and it fixes tears or cracks in the body...

I use the aluminium tape, but have used shoe goo at the track if the tape has come away.

It looks better if you put it on the INSIDE!

Drywall tape and shoe goo or Liquid Nails "small job" adhesive (same thing basically, and easier to find... any hardware store/Home Depot)
