Heater Hose and Spark Plug Wires/Boots wire sizes?


Recommended Posts

Browsing though this old post and I noticed the glossiness of the wire being an issue. Just fold a piece of fine sand paper around the wire and pull it through it a few times.

That will work on an insulated wire with some sort of plastic insulation on it. But if you did that to the enameled jewelry wire, that will likely remove the colored enamel, exposing the bare wire.  I suppose that using DUllcote might work for that type of wire.

Get you some gray scotchbrite pads and gently pull the wire through the scotchbrite a few times. This will knock the glossiness down without removing the coating.
