Semi-gloss black is fine.  All originals I have seen had the tape in the middle.  Sometimes the wires have black over-spray on them.

I used a tape AMK sells

http://www.amkproducts.com/Catalog_PDF/165-176.pdf

I got the 2" tape and trimmed it down to 1"



I don't know if its the "best" product out there for concours restorations, it works for me.
If you're interested in some, in the past, I've sent members strips of the tape on wax paper -
I don't need 180' and it seems foolish for everyone to buy a roll when you normally only need a foot or so.

Masking tape sprayed with black paint works fine too.  The original stuff was a grayish color.

These are fairly new products for us, and I really like them.  They work well and look great.
