Aluminum Straps
« on: September 26, 2014, 12:51:58 pm »
Just a quick little tip ... Heat shrink tubing makes a nice replacement for the tired old plastic on the aluminum hose/wiring straps.

I used a 7/8" flat tubing ... perfect fit. It is only about half as thick as the original rubber, but I suppose you could double it up if you wanted.

Cheers All,

Not sure if they're still available from Honda but they were the last time I checked (but this is a good option).
