Err 001 w/1dsII + adapted lens/Ext. Tube. "Tape"/paint contacts to fix?

I'm sure I've used this combo before without problems, but today I got the Err 001 message using a Kenko EOS extension tube. Removing it solved the problem, but I was no longer able to get close to my subject!

What could I use to permanently cover/insulate the contacts on the tube? In the past when I've had similar problems I tried tape, but that didn't work too well.
