What type of tape should I be using to wrap my new wiring harness? Is there a tape or wrap that has no glue on it? for the underhood area. If so where do I get it? thanks,Ed

Wire wrap tape (without glue) is a standard item in your favorite Camaro Parts warehouse. They sell a good size roll, enough to do a bunch of harnesses. The rear harnesses (dome light and taillights) used a cloth tape. I have found wide (1.5") black athletic tape to be a very good match.

I used the black cloth hockey stick tape from the sports store. Worked great :)

Good Kevin,since you mentioned trunk wire and were on the subject,how do I route the wires from the left wheelhouse to the lights?Do they run along bottom of 1/4 panel or do they go up around the top of 1/4 panel inside?

The wiring should run from bottom of the left wheel house to the left tailight and the across the back behind the fuel filler neck to the other side.

Thanks Eric,the picture shows it in the 2nd attachment.It comes over the wheelhouse and along the edge of the dropoff at left 1/4 panel near marker light then back around below the taillights,as I thought,but it does have clips to hold it in place so it's not just laying there.I'll just have to find the right clips.
