Default heat tape. where to get it?

anyone wanna share where they got their heat tape to prevent the brake resi from melting down into goo?

i went into an autozone and a napa, and both times i got a look like i was from another planet when i described what i needed. i'm not surprised i got that look, but it didn't solve my problem.

home depot, in the ducting section, right next to the real duct tape. You should also wrap your downpipe or ceramic coat it, and stick a heat blanket on the turbo as well.

or thermotec I think sells the fiberglass-foil tape which is probably better.
