    Things you need:
    1) Exhaust wrap and stainless steel zip ties
    2) skinny needle nose pliers.
    3) cutters
    4) flat tip screw driver
    5) patience. (This ones key for wrapping exhaust)

    I used the titanium lava wrap from DEI with some stainless zip ties I purchased from cables ties and more, 25 ties for less then the price of 4 from DEI.

    First trim the zip tie to about 3/4 to 1 inch in length.

    Grab the end with your needle nose pliers and twist, the tighter the twist the cleaner it will look. The more you twist the tighter the zip tie will become, just be careful to not over-tighten and break the tie.

    Stick the screwdriver between the pliers and zip tie to tighten help give you leverage when twisting the pliers.

    All done!

    A side benefit is the rolled end isn't sharp so no chance of cutting anything.
