Hot Rods How do you tie down hoses, cables and wires up under the hotrod?

    As I am under my truck installing the new emergency brake Wilwood cables kit I start looking around at the way the wires and hoses are routed and tied down to my truck. Most of it is held together with plastic zip ties. How do you guys keep it all neat and in place under your hotrods?

    Do you zip tie as well or something else?

    These frame clips are often used on semi trailers, you can see how I used them to secure the split loom along the frame rail. On the opposite frame rail the same clips with tubing clamps secure the fuel line at numerous points along the frame. For brake lines I use small stainless steel tubing clips screwed directly to the frame. 36810078_1720394307998043_3823688450234646528_o.jpg

    Where my battery cables pass over the frame I used a hydraulic tube isolator to be 100% sure they couldn't rub on the frame. you can also see spiral wrap pairing the cables together and protecting them underneath the vehicle.

    Do you know where I can find the clips for the frame rails? That looks like a great solution.

    Look at Made for you T clamps.
    I’ve used them everywhere on my RPU and they’re really good.
