Best stator coating for bare metal stator?

I'm rebuilding a PJS 3D 550 that had been pretty well trashed and stripped-no wire etc.
Whoever stripped it also took off all the coating off the stator in addition to the wiring.
I'm thinking of putting plastic on the front and rear cut to match the stator outline to help prevent wire shorting on the sharp edges but what is the best coating other wise for the rest of the stator?
I've tried thinned out epoxy before but didn't like it.

Hi

The problem with coaing the stators is that surface tension pulls the coating away from where you need it ,ie the corners ,you could try some thin u sections of fish paper or any paper probably will do ,slipped onto the sides of the stator poles.

Olmod,
Thanks-Again!
I'll call around tomorrow and see if I can find some.
Also have you heard of something that sounds like "Capstan" tape?

oh yes

Id forgotten that! some of the other uses for audio 1/4 " tape and others like vcr tape are good for binding grafts on fruit trees too. but id stick with the fish paper ,it gilloutines nicely and can be folded around a former to make up small u shaped pieces it only needs to cover the two outside corners on each side.

How does the audio tape hold up to the heat?

Capstan: n. 1. A round roller. 2. The round roller used to 'pinch' the recording media (i.e. tape) on 1/4" reel-to-reel or vcr machines against the driven motor spindle.

Well I found some fish paper.
The type I found is kind of like cardboard with some kind of flexible stuff in it-not very flexible however.(I'll bet there's some thinner fishpaper but this was all they had).
I did find some great stuff though called "Insulating Cambric".
It's a very flexible plastic cloth, .010" thick-"Dielectric srength (whatever that is) 5000 volts"
I think it'll be perfect.
I did try some " Dielectric insulating spray paint"-very thick stuff.
I'll try winding without the cambric first and if I get any shorts use it.

The paint as Olmood said it would flowed away from the corners but the "insulating cambric"cloth is great-worked fine-wound 20 turns of 25 gauge-no shorts.
