Looking for some mastic tape to finish off my build.  I know I can find it online but want to buy it locally today.  I am on the shore.  Anyone knows where they can get this stuff or if anyone has some lying around to sell me.  I just need enough for one chain stay

Mastic tape is tough to find in Canada for some reason. Easier to find in the US. I use this stuff, less sticky, and not quite as thick. It is easy to wrap and sticks to itself though.

Another alternative, though not a tape, is Sugru:

How much do you need? I have a meter of the stuff.

I bought a skinny roll of mastic tape from Home Depot that fit my chainstay better than the 1" wide magic wrap/ regular mastic tape.

Thanks everyone.   Got what I needed from  Rnayel.

Home Depot.  Which one?  I went on line but it was only available in the states
