Wraping bars from the top to the bottom does not look right IMHO.

color matching heat shrink tubing seems like it would be a good solution.

makes a big difference. the common ones found in hardware stores are junk and use terrible adhesives.

Gorilla tape...it will never come off and there is no need to stretch it either, just a few wraps and cut it so that the end is on the underside...job done.

Definitely decent tape - the cheap stuff doesn't stick. And 2 wraps max - it's just to stop the end unrolling so you don't need to use the whole roll of tape.

It just goes on the tape - not stuck to the bars as well.

Wrap and cut the bar tape to suit, unwrap a turn or 2, start the electrical tape on the bar and wrap the bar tape over the elec tape and then 2-3 wraps to finish. Clean edge and solid anchor for the tape. Dab of super glue on the end of the tape stops fidgeting fingers lifting the finished edge.
