So, what nifty ideas are out there for mounting the wiring harness to the frame?

I like the idea of a fastener that gives access to the wiring harness at a later date, if needed, as opposed to simply riveting the metal clips FFR provided in place

Check out the wiring harness kit from Mr. Gasket. This is what we used for our project. It comes with extra split loom, but more importantly it comes with plastic Ts for the split loom and two different styles of clips to retain the loom that can be popped open to R&R the harness for upgrades or repairs. One style has a push pin end for a drilled hole and the other style has a loop for a screw or rivet...

I like the ones from Mr. Gasket, but I can't seem to find them on the site. Can someone point me directly to the page?

Thanks

Use riv nuts. Drill a hole get a riv nut gun and then you use a bolt after that. You can always have access to it later.

Mark-

Do you know if they sell those clips separately? I only saw them on their site in a "kit" that includes the loom, etc.

For guys in Ontario, Spaenaur has the clips Tim pictured above in a few different sizes. I seem to remember them coming in at $0.17-0.25ea depending on size.

Home Depot also sells tie-wraps with an eye for a screw, which are stronger than the Mr.Gasket ones. I used them where I wouldn't be able to get to the wire such as in the tranny tunnel and under the trunk sheet metal. The rest of the place I used the Mr.Gasket hangers as well as some stick on hangers that I also got from HD which hold a tie wrap. They worked well on the firewall or other locations where you may not want to drill a hole.
