Default Wiring Harness Tape Recommendations

Does anyone have specifics on what type of tape was used for the wiring harness in the engine bay?

I've replaced a few wire leads to the turn signals and the windshield washer pump, and I'm having trouble finding information on the correct wrap to use. Hoping to get as close to OEM as possible.

Note; that tape is sold by the meter. 33pcs gets you one roll.

Looks like OEM is Tesa 4252. Much much cheaper ordering off that part number.

Ok, I really don't want 10 of them. Who bought some and would sell a roll?

He sells lower Qty, but I bought 10 rolls if you want one.

Braymond, for the interior wiring, do you know the make and brand of the OEM tape? It looks like standard friction tape to me.

Is it this OEM stuff? https://www.ebay.com/itm/3x-Tesa-Aut...MAAOSwJaxcRdzG
