        It does look a lot better than a normal hose clamp. Great!

        Hehe, I have seen that engine bay like 79 - 100 times too. Every time, I am still amazed and appreciative of how wonderful it looks.

            Very clean and very practical.
            I have many pictures of this engine compartment since the first year I started collecting them on this site.
            love the color too!:burnout:

            A neat use of the stuff. 2 thumbs up
            I put a couple of small pieces of white heatshrink on the ends of those clamps on the distributor. Less sharps and easier to see.
            I put the white over the vacuum tubing that connects the performance gauge behind the inst' panel so its easier to identify too.

            Yo Super Scamp, Love the avatar :)

            I believe you can get the shrink in different colors too
