Looking for some clear ignition wire so I can make a new set of plug wires for the trump. Not red clear... just clear. Mr. Griffin said to try Ebay, but didn't see them up there. Anyone know where I can find this stuff? Is it copper core?

Thanks!

Aquarium hose with a copper wire inside? Never seen clear ign wires myself. Are you trying to make them invisible to plugwire thieves?

Yes! That's basically what they are. Maybe G. will post a pick of his shovel real quick to show the world what we're talking about...

I've seen the clear wires you're talking about but have no idea where to get 'em.

I know that's really a big help...

You can really freak them out by using clear aquarium hose filled with, not copper, but salt water to conduct the electricty! Works in theory...

Call Yoshi at the evil empire (AKA The Garage Company), that's where I got my clear ignition wire.

I've never seen clear. I'm running clear heater core lines on my 63 Falcon. I've got to use these on it too. Thanks for the thread.

Probably, he's an ebay junky, but I always call people if I can. There's just more immediacy then.

Lots of good leads here (get it?! HAA!)... I'll check them all out. Thanks for the effort.

Nutz, does Yoshi answer emails?

I agree. I emailed him awhile back for some stuff and never heard back. That's why I ask. I shot him an email about the wires just in case, but will end up calling him when I get a chance.

Thanks for the tip.

I have a spool of it in the garage . it is copper core but it is Blue wire inside since you can see the oxydation on the copper . How much do you need ?
That blue appearance might actually be pretty cool! Could you possibly take a quick pic of it and PM it to me? I need about 4-feet (gives me room for screw ups).

PM me... thanks!

from the wierd but true files:

years ago i had a buddy that was a real practical joker. we used to play tricks on each other all the time to see who could fuck with the other ones mind the most. one night i was over at his house playing poker and he went outside under some pretense or other for a few minutes. i didn't think anything about it and after a few hands of cards i went home. about a week later i ran into him and he gets this strange look on his face and asks how my car was running. at the time i had a 65 stingray with a 283 4spd and it was running great. my buddy asked me to pop the hood and proceeded to pull off the coil wire and look at it. he hands it to me and it turns out to be a length of vacuum line ! then he tells me that the week before when he went outside he swapped my coil wire out for the empty tubing, sure that it would drive me nuts trying to figure out why my car wouldn't run. well....it ran great. go figure :confused:
