Cheap Trick - shift cable protection

I had the bad experience of my B&M shifter cable ballooning while at a gas station on my way to a job interview. How to explain THAT one!? The cable had melted in a spot near the exhaust, so when I tried to shift, the cable just ballooned. My jeepchick dropped me off to make the interview on time, and here was my fix:

I went to Home Depot and got some aluminum (?) flexible wire loom. The kind used for the interiors of houses. It's kinda spiralled. Anyway, I ran a new cable through that, and zip-tied it as far away from heat as possible.

Just wanted to share an idea.

'82 CJ-7/360/727/D300/M.O.R.E. shackles and lots of ideas!

Have you kissed your JEEP lately?

This litle tip came just in time, I think I'll sheath the shift cable on our new MEGASHIFTER before hooking it up.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
