Anyone here tried Sharkhide?

Tim,

Iíve used Sharkhide on many parts including my gas tank. Goes on clear, dries clear. Been 3 years and still looks great.

Watching this has lead me to a few questions.  Can you re-use the original staples or do they break?  I assume the staples are applied after the paint?
I think you will find the original are difficult to work with but yes, the staples were applied after paint. I used steel wire (not stainless) to make our staples and as Bill had noted they need to be at 90 degree angles.

What James said works very well.
I agree! When installing I use a light coat of dawn detergent for lubricant.

Hello again, I'm replacing the fuel line, tank to pump, in my 68 z/28. Is that a one piece or two and 5/16? I was told that it was a two piece but I can't fine a two piece line on the net?
1 piece and 3/8" as aforementioned.

This is the other product i use. I don't remember if I've used it in near heat either. It's real nice to take a small paint brush and dab on bolt heads though. I had read another member had used it. One other thing I should mention, I used some Eastwood low gloss clear on my drive shaft to protect the natural finish. It was for bare metal and the exhaust pipe heat has melted that off or damaged it and I had some surface rust starting on that drive shaft
