To reinforce the body to prevent cracking? Fiberglass drywall tape with shoe goo. I usually reinforce around the body posts, and any "stress points."

I've never put a heat shield tape on, but thinking about it on the body I'm about to do.

I have had a pipe distort the plastic before... polycarbonate bodies are formed by heating to about 360 degrees and pulling over a mold using vacuum. I'm thinking the heat shield tape is a good idea.

The Nomex tape is my favorite but it's $6.00 per car.
The aluminium air conditioner tape has come off on me but its much cheaper.
I use the Shoo-goo and fiber method now because it also holds my bodies together longer, i put it at all the places where bodies normally break and i'm good
