braided lines
So I was going to dress up my engine in Carbon Fiber, but I don't really like it that much (sorry guys!). I prefer to see the engine itself, so I'm going to degrease it all perdy and then i was thinking of getting some braided hoses for everything. Now my question is, can I get some braided hoses that will match nice from somewhere, or should I get the "hose covering kit" type deal? What do you all think?

Overbrading can be purchased by the roll, newark electronics has shielding that will go over wireing harnesses. (This eliminates the hazard of EMF pulses damaging on board computers when properly grounded, it is standard on jet aircraft) You only need this if you are a drug runner. The tin coated copper is $30 - $200 for a 100' roll, depending on size. Zipper mesh shielding has a zipper for easy access if that is important! Another option is colored heat shrink fabric (least abrasive to other harnesses/hoses) Expandable color polyester braiding is my preferance. It is light, non abrasive, and avalible in many colors. The brading will expand when pushed together. I like brousing Mouser's online cataloge. www.mouser.com They sell LED's too.
