PostSubject: Exhaust wrap - how to?   Fri Sep 06, 2013 11:04 am

I am planning to wrap the headers, haven't done it before, and would like advice. Anyone here done this before?
If so, what is the method, and are there any tricks to getting a good result?
Cheers

Do it naked and dry. But don't forget to rub it on all your sensitive bits first.
Well that's how Doug did it!!!
