Just an FYI. In a former life I did a lot of wiring and
one of the products I came accross was this shrink
tubing that had adheasive inside. The product
is made by 3M and I can vouch for this stuff.

Besides the obvious use for wiring, it can be used to do things like insulate the shank of a screw driver so you don't short stuff out. Just use your imagination.

I posted this because I was reading warthogs M1007 post and noticed his wiring technique.

I use the same stuff, "Adhesive-Lined, Polyolefin Tubing" it's the bomb. The adhesive melts when you shrink it, completely sealing it from moisture.

Have you seen the new low temperature solder sleeves that have a solder ring inside adhesive lined heatshrink? When you hit them with a heat gun the solder melts and joins the wires and the heatshrink melts down and creates a watertight seal. The best of both worlds. I found it on Everybody Bids Against You but electronics shops should be carrying it pretty soon. I just checked Amazon and there all over it too. Search "heat shrink solder sleeves".
