Hi Dale,

I recall that thread well.  I believe the consensus was to use butyl rubber
tape topped off with Scotch 88 or Scotch 33 (the 88 is thicker).  I use a
couple of small black (uv resistant) cable ties on top of that to keep the tape
from flagging.  The liquid you refer to is ScotchKote (also a 3M product).  It
works great in a permanent installation.  Just put a coat of it over the tape,
then another layer of tape and another coat of ScotchKote.  It doesn't come off
easily so don't use it if you plan to disconnect.

73 - JC,
