Re: Getting started on the Heep resto....
I still recommend shiney "First-Aid" tape and a "Sharpie" for marking parts, hoses, and wiring. My dad used every type of tag possible (except Tyvec[img]images/icons/blush.gif[/img]) in an attempt to find one that held up and would stay put for years. Most tags will fade after a few months in the weather/sun, will fall/tear off after getting wet or oily, or get hung and forcably removed if secured by string/wire. He went to Johnson&Johnson FirstAid tape and a permanent marker after the first 10 years and much of what he labeled is still legible after almost 20 years of sun, rain, wind, & multiple moves. HTH
