You most definitely want the pipe wrapped. That is a must. Also, it's a good idea to have something on your arm. This certainly isn't the cheapest but probably is the best available are protector. It's made from aluminized blended Kevlar. They are sold in pairs. I've been wearing the same one for going on 10 years. I sold the other to a friend. They work great and hold up equally well. Find a buddy who needs one and split the cost.

You can also go to a welding supply store or your local welding shop and buy a welding sleeve, thats what my son did and it works great !
 
When you wrap the header with wrap you can use some type of thin wire to keep it on, usally just at the end of the wrap.... hope this helps.
