Does anyone know where I might get blade protection tape? I've a 4 metre rotor, so dont need a lot, and on inspection my blades are suffering. Might as well do it while I have the turbine on the ground.

Answered my own question but thought I'd post it in case others need the answer. Found 3M '8672' Leading Edge tape that is commonly used to protect aircraft propellors, and did in fact get it from an aircraft spares place. Not expensive either, and hopefully the blades will be protected for a good while now. Gave the blades a good rub down and polish at the same time, amazing how pitted they were - needed several resin repairs too.
