When I rebuilt my car I looked all over for tie-wraps like they used at the factory, that plug into the holes in the body to hold the various harnesses. I finally found them but the seller only sold in lots of a 1000. So I think I'm finally done with my car and have a lot of these tie-wraps. Thought I would see if anybody is interested (or as anal as I am), before I put them on Ebay. I'll send you 50 ties, I think the car takes 35, for $15 (in the lower 48) that includes postage. Thanks, Rob

Rob:

That is a good deal.

BTW, McMaster/Carr sells very similar ties. Yours look like the exact part that the factory used, the McMaster/Carr items are very similar and work just fine, but are not identical to the factory part.

Hi Vance,
these are really close to original, they are like half a millimeter narrower. I had pictures of the 2 together but can't find them. It would take a REALLY good judge to see the difference. I'm just "stupid anal" sometimes and this was one of them. Thanks, Rob

Hi Pat,
yes, that is a replacement harness and the brown/red tape is the way they came from the factory. Thanks, Rob
