Am I shallow? Maybe.....
« on: May 18, 2011, 08:13:12 AM »

....but I want a set of orange wires w/ 8mm+ thick silicone jacket, RFI-shielded, and w/ 180 degree boots for the plugs.  I can't find them, but I can find orange ones like that that are 7mm thick.  I know thicker shielding is better for the life/performance of the wires so I shouldn't compromise on that.....

....but I WANT ORANGE WIRES!!!!  

So maybe I am shallow for going with the "pretty" part instead of better-preforming, boring, black wires.

But before I commit to buying the set I found that comes closest to what I want, (here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=330561249251&viewitem=#vi-content ) I was wondering if anyone knew of another set that's closer to what I want in the color I want?

Sure don't. My preference is the yellow 90/straight instead of black, but that's just me. We can all be picky about whatever we want because it is not a life or death reason, it is a preference, and sometimes that is worth waiting for.

I've bought "cut your own" wires that were orange but have the straight "Chevy style" boot.  Why?  Because I will never use the bent ones again.  But, you might be able to find them if you specify the bow tie.  Just a thought....

Thanks.  I'll send him an email.  No offense to Snotty - but I just don't want to deal with the "make your own ends" type of plug wires.  Taylor makes a nice set of those in orange.....but I'm doing too much right now and I need "plug 'n play" items if I'm going to be ready for Carlisle in July.

I like the jazzy colors too... even contemplated some of those color
anodized braided hoses and fittings, but that might be a bit too much
on an "antique", more hot-roddish. Still like 'em though.



Let us know what you find...
