Wanted to add that I picked up a few of these last week at Home Depot. There are tons of uses for nice insulated clamps like this. I recently reinforced our living room foundation floor and rewired everything(cable, power, Cat 7 ethernet, speaker) and these would be great where I had bundled wiring.  In my garage I used a couple of these for the heavy gauge power wires to the power strips at the front of my work benches. They are easier to install and look better than the insulated staples and cheaper clamps I usually use.  Interesting how my car stuff often ends up on my house stuff and vice-versa.

Nice and neat addition to an already neat and clean engine bay.

Very nice solution … and if you want to stay a bit closer to original look those clamps I see over on the left would be a good option also. I got my reproduction  from USA Parts, and know Russ sells nice repros so we do have options!

Your solution looks very neat!

I was able to find a plastic "rivet" and nylon strap in Lowes hardware dept. and approximate the original.

Could the reason for non metallic fasteners be to reduce the liklihood of a short in the event of a front collision?

Nice! I'm all for ditching all the plastic on these cars. I still have what's left of the broken plastic clamp on my radiator housing and that looks to be a great replacement option.

Original 64 Color sanded and buffed out

Posted by Norman Silverman on November 10, 2018 at 9:05pm 14 Comments

I finally got the car back from the body shop, where they color sanded and polished it out. I am literally blown away by the result! Now, it looks great from 2 feet but if you look REALLY CLOSE you can see that the paint is not as glossy as it should be, but Sothe end result is much better than what I started with. The interior is still original.
