Default Wire Sleeving

I am thinking of sleeving all of the cables on my PSU and was recommending if anyone knew any good kits that provide sufficient amount of sleeving and heat shrink tubing. Also I had a few questions about it, is it true you can short something out by putting the wrong wire back into the connector? I understand you could write it down or make a note of some sort, but when the mobo connector comes to mind it seems as if it would be very difficult. Also can you use a hairdryer to shrink the heat shrink tubing? I dont really wanna spend 20 bucks on a heat gun that I will only use once.

if you don't want to bother with heat-shrink, you could always try this.. it may not be a professional looking as HS, but it works just as well for air flow.
