Well, I washed the tube strips and dried them before applying them. I put the inside of the tubes as the outside of the tape. I used the old black plastic caps at the bar ends. It's sticky. It's smooshy. It's just the right length and width. It's great so far. If it degrades and makes my hands all black, I'll find out soon enough.

I noticed that I needed to replace the yellow cork tape on my Schwinn Traveler. When it got jacked up at the end of last season, I just used household Goop to fix the tears. Just so happens that there was another old tube laying around. I'm gonna see how it works out on the Peugeot on my commute tomorrow. If all is okay, I'll replace this tape with my snazzy innertube tape too.
