Heat shrink, routing wires, etc.

I'm about 3/4 complete wiring my 67 Scout. This is an offroad rig but does have alot of bling and leads a pampered life in a heated garage. I installed a complete new wiring harness using crimp on connectors. After looking at the project I decided to use solder instead to give me a more reliable and better looking job. Also, I'm looking for a better way to route the wires, right now I'm using the standard black tube with the slit down the side. So I have 2 questions.

Since I'm soldiering the wires I'll be using heat shrink. The Home improvment store has 3 different heat guns of various heat ranges, what is the best heat range for heat shink?

What is the best way to route wires? I want this job to look and work great, any ideas/pictures would be nice.
