    None of the above.

    It's expensive, but "Speed Tape" is da bomb, aka 600 MPH tape. It was used to patch bullet holes and small cracks on jet fighters.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Ordinance Tape... we used it for all kinds of stuff in the Naval Air Wing to include restraints that wouldn't break.

    For reasons I never understood, my tape deck always made much better quality recordings with Maxell UD XL-II. I tried many others, but the difference was dramatic.
