Indeed, I was just going to suggest a roll of black vinyl electrical 
tape.  It's best to use a good 3M roll, rather than the cheap 
$0.50/roll junk you can buy, also.  There's a noticeable difference 
between the cheap stuff and the "expensive" stuff, and the more 
expensive stuff really is worth the price difference, in adhesion, 
flexibility, durability, and thickness.
