Notice there are spiraled plastic covers tubing in chrome or colors for wire, tubes, ignition, vacuum lines that can be covered for appearance. Wonder if the heat will affect them. Anyone using this for show ??? Reply please.

If its good quality, it will resist normal engine bay heat. Dont get the chrome. I did on one car and it was always flaking off. It would be OK for a trailer queen I guess.

They're called wire loom, I replaced most of mine with the black stuff Home Depot sells and it's held up well.

Honestly? Just use black. Unless you really want to call attention to your wiring and vacuum lines. Clean, polish or paint everything else that's metal, get yourself some flashy plug wires and a colorful distributor cap, but keep the wiring and vacuum lines black so they'll blend into the background and not compete with everything else.

I realize there are no doubt different qualities of this stuff, but I'm surprised to hear the Home Depot loom has held up well. I've read here several times that most any of the aftermarket plastic wire loom can't take the heat nearly as well as the stock OEM stuff (and that it's best to go to the wrecking yard and strip what you need off a another car).
