i saw this today on one of my DVR'd TV car shows. Has anyone here tried this? i need to recover/replace some wires on the '51... Mods - place on "Tech" if necessary.

i think i've got more than enough "rubber" heat shrink left over from other projects to do the car, but may wait to make it look "right". or get a "cloth" wrap to put over that to make her look right.

depends if anyone has had problems with the product.:)

Cool. Thanks for sharing--that looks very interesting.

I saw that covering on a car at a car show a couple of weekends ago. Very impressive look. Tape wrapped wiring always looked better to me than the clunky over sized corrugated plastic wire looms, but this shrink to fit covering beats the tape hands down. Very "factory" looking. I'm currently using the OE MGB blue tape covering on the harness in my current (non Stude) project, but I'm going to give the Ron Francis product a go when I reassemble after tearing down for body and paint...

I'm using the braided split loom from Ron Francis, but the shrink stuff is new to me. If put over stock wiring it may not clear the connectors and still shrink enough.

Have never used that, but have gotten cloth covered wire from here:http://www.riwire.com/Catalogs/sup/pages/wire.htm
