There is some interesting stuff at the Boeing Surplus store. They have regular shrink tube. They have braided fabric stuff that looks pretty serious, usually in diameters like 1.5" or 2". And then they have this clear stuff, like plastic tubing, that's fairly stiff to begin with, but when you heat it and it shrinks, it becomes stiff as a goat's prick. I'd hate to have to remove that stuff. Shrinking it is difficult or impossible with a Bic lighter. Much easier with a brief hit of propane.
