I thought everyone already knew, and forgot to update this. I sold it locally back in April to Shawn Inman. He got it tuned, cut the back off and set it on 42s.
I then picked up the second Low Budget Pimpin chassis built and had to redo basically everything. Pic of Debra after her first waterfall.

Link where I get the marine grade stuff: They have the shrink with adhesive and the sleeving I was on about. I think you will like the sleeving it makes very nice harnesses. Put shrink on either end and you have a very nice harness, not quite like an airplane but close enough. It gives the harness an abrasive resistant shield. Some has a high heat resistance also depending on the area you use it.
Amazon also has the sleeving.
this is a guitar cable I built using the sleeving. This sleeving came from Amazon. I've built all kinds of harnesses with this sleeving. Alarm system harnesses, audio, radio, etc. It just makes for a professional looking job.

Don't forget about the heat shrinkable splices with adhesive. We used them on aircraft. Of course you may be be better off soldering the connections and using the marine heat shrink so you don't have a bigger lump in the harness than necessary.
i know a lot of people like using flame on shrink don't do this, just buy a cheap heat gun from HF.

|johncanfield||Just a year or two ago I became aware of heat shrink tubing with adhesive - sometimes referred to as "marine" heat shrink tubing. Good advice from Mark. I haven't used the liquid tape products so I'm not sure how robust that would be in the long run.|

|MxRubicon||For electrical connections which I absolutely want to make sure are weather proof I coat the wires on liquid electrical tape before the shrink wrap, as a bonus the liquid tape absorbs vibration which could break the solder bond over time, pic for reference.|

They also have them for coaxial type cable if there are any of those type of wires in the harness. They also sell the mesh fire retardant sleeve that's made for harnesses.
