Hey Moparman...what are you going to use the 'wire' for? Simulated plug wiring?

I went to Radio Shack and bought 'Insulated Wrapping Wire' 30 AWG Kynar Wire, Cat. No. 278-502. It comes in three colors, red, white and blue. You get 50 feet. I forget the cost, but wasn't very much. I use for plug wires or anything of a small gauge. Works for me.

My two cents!

I also use the Radio Shack Wrapping wire, if you get the white you can color it with markers or paint it any color you want. Works great.

Try their website...RadioShack
...do a search for...Wrapping Wire...they still carry it - $2.99 for 50'.

The local stores vary in quality...

well moparman if you have a hobby lobby near you , you can find what you need there. like you said look in the beading isle, they have all sorts of it. i even bought some of a larger diameter to use for heater hoses, and its kind of a flat/pail red. looks really good.Thumbs UpThumbs Up

Ive used the Radio-Snack wrapping wire,and while it is a little large for an older oem/7-8mm plug wire,it looks awesome on more modern drag motors,like R-M's Top Fuel dragsters and funny cars.There is a chain of 'Michaels arts and crafts' stores in my area,and they carry a black insulated 26 gauge(supposedly)wire,that is almost the exact same diameter as the Shack's red white and blue.This stuff works good for 3/8 or 1/2" rubber fuel and oil lines as well.Im still looking for the 30 gauge too,if I come up with the right stuff,Ill definitely post it here.Later-Lew.
