Re: [DML] AC Condensation



You need emalgamating tape which is like padded, gummy duct tape that never 
looses it's tackiness.  Iteliminates the sweating.  When I was on that stage 
of my aircon rebuild I ended up buying the tape from DMCH and it worked out 
cheaper than buying it from the hard to find suppliers here in the UK.  It 
is far easier to roll it around the evaporator pipes whilst it is out of the 
car.

It is good stuff and I have loads left.  If you would like some, email me 
off list...
