Default Oil Refinery

Welll i just decided that with all the new city campaigns and the Jungle style battles not being seen as much im now making city stuff apart from my usual jungle stuff.
First to start im thinking so i dont completly drop my precious jungle terrain i will make a destroyed/abandoned oil refinery over grown by jungle. I will definetly post pics when its done but for now im wondering this. I took a can (kinda like a smaller coffe can w/o the ridges) of my old filler and added straws coming out of it to my pump ( a black primer cap). The only problem is i added masking tape to make it easier to put on the straws. It looks great but the only problem is the tape looks like theres a shroud of cloth around the pump because of excess tape. I know this is kind of a weird quiestion because its really not help with building the terrain but what could this excess tape be called on the cap? Ex. Protective shroud to protect from sparks..etc...

Maybe make it a joint cover? Paint it to look rubbery.

why are you using tape in the first place? superglue will work fine on straws.

and as for a oil refinery to represent that just try a bunch of storage tanks, and do your piping from tank to tank.

most of the detail stuff will be inside a building anyways.
you could make concrete areas where it looks like trucks back tankers down into and so on.

try mixing some 'ardcoat with black... experiment. Oil stains for one of my Hammerheads was done with 'ardcoat.

Oil refineries are not clean places... so keep that in mind. Also go seek out reference photos if you want something closer to Imp/modern standards...
If nothing else, the Kroot know how to throw a good party.

Drench on the Black Spray paint to the extent that it is layering for oil.
