Does anyone have any tricks or special brakets they use when attaching the fuel and brake lines to the frame. I dont want to pay 4.25 per clip for the plastic ones from the factory. What does everyone use?

Thanks

Truck parts houses usually have the plastic coated metal loops that hold that stuff for about $4/dozen, you need to drill and tap a hole to attach them. Or weld a small piece of 14 or 16 ga. sheetmetal to the frame and bend it around the lines (like the factory rear harness keepers in the tub)

/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif I use the little rubber-lined one-hole pipe hangars as described by Rods-In-Dirt. I try not to use plastic near steel or copper line because the plastic is abrasive enough to rub through the line over time./wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif Been there......had a plastic line cross the brake line at a 90 degree angle and it wore through, and the front brakes went away. The plastic line was an aftermarket gas line that some yahoo at an RV place installed when the Suburban was previously owned. That wasn't ALL they did wrong/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif. I also had some army surplus aircraft clamps that were really nice.....rubber lined....worked good./wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif
