 The problem I see with mylar is that stuff is not really resistant to heat
 and get deform when heated.

Some of the information I have about Mylar is that it will withstand 300 
degrees F. It is unaffected by most oils, and solvents. Also it will not 
become brittle with age.  Since I am only going to use this transformer in 
short runs to power Tesla coils, overheating should not be a problem. It will 
take a long time for 50 plus pounds of magnet wire to reach a high enough 
temprature to cause damage to the insulation.(maybe a dead short across the 
output terminals would do the trick  though).
