Zip ties

How can you fabricate zip ties holding the brake lines under the chassis, or to hold wirings in the engine compartment?

To do zip ties on wires take black nylon sewing thread or a thread that is not fuzzy and wrap it around the wires. Do this holding one end and wrap the other end around the wires, then pull the ends tight and tie together against the wires makeing a knot. Then cut off the excess thread close to the knot and add a drope of super glue to the knot. I hope it makes sence, you can also use other colors. This method also works well on roll bar padding.

Again, thank you for the tip, i used 6lbs fishing line with your method. before i wraped the spark plug wires ,i used a black marker on the line or you can use any color. it does make it  very neat looking.
