Print Screen key works when you hit the button then go to a simple program like MS Paint and paste it there :cry:

I used over 18' of 1" thermotec black tape for just my Powerbomb Header. That was wrapping with over half overlap so essentially there are two layers of tape on my header.

There you go. I was expecting a dialogue box to open so I didn't think it was working but I just hit print screen and pasted in MS word and it worked. Thanks TD

Wade never did mention anything about header degradation. My assumption on that matter is that unless moisture gets under the wrap there shouldn't be any more wear than without wrap...but that is my assumption.

Wade sells header tape, and apparently he also paints the wrap with a heat paint afterwards. Here is a link to the Summers wrap and paint (25' @ $27.95)

I just have a couple questions:

1) Sounds like most guys are having to adjust their jetting. Which circuit are you finding needs adjustment after wrapping?

2) The wrap manufacturers claim increase low end (minimal if neglegable of course) but Ive read several people losing some low end. What's the consensus on that?

My only reason for wanting to wrap was b/c my powerbomb has no shield and I want some heat protection from myself. But if it causes a decrease in performance then I would be turned off.
