Pipe Wrap Complete

I decided to do an "old school' trick and wrap my pipes with a resin cloth. I found a real nice guy on the internet that had just done his, and he agreed to send me his left over wrap for the price of shipping. Can't beat a deal like that! I marked off the ending point on the pipes and removed them from the beast. Prewrapping the pipes gave the length I needed and the wrap was cut and 'moistened' for the procedure. I wrapped the pipes, and using the kids help applied the c-snap clamps to hold it in place. It took about 2 days for the wrap to harden completely and than I hanged them from the ceiling. I sprayed an entire can of ceramic high heat exhaust coat onto the wraps and let that dry for about a day. I just finished installing them this morning and they look pretty tough. I am glad I did it.
