    You mean Liquid Electrical Tape by Star Brite? It claims to be UV 
resistant but it dries up and flakes off anyway. At K5RC's place at 7,000 feet 
in NV, 
it mostly dried up and disappeared within a year or two. Don't you guys have 
extensive sunshine in FLA too? It's hard to believe that it has much of a 
service life in those conditions. It's a problem we don't have to worry about 
Seattle - hi!
