Looking for some of that sticky film/wrap you see being used in the likes of LeMans.... used to hold together damaged panels and such like.

Anyone know the correct name for it, or suggest where to get it?

Had a quick squint on demontweeks but didn't see anything.

Surely it's just duct tape we need? The big sections will just be self adhesive vinyl, available on eBay and the likes.

i've just ordered a batch of tape, but though this would be more useful, certainly looks it from watching endurance race pitstops first hand

What you want is what we term speed tape it's an aluminium tape used on aircraft panels.

Is it not the 3m vinyl car protection film? Plenty on ebay.

It can be applied wet, or dry, and a little heat makes it very sticky.

If it's for panel protection then can see why you would want the clear vinyl if it's to hold panels together etc after an off then th speed tape is the best option.
