Downunder these are called "bushman's clips" where fencing, barbed or other types of wire are substituted for the real thing.

And Eric, you call tell people that the shifter knob is a "Lalique", 99.99% wouldn't know otherwise!

Eric,

You and I have similar cars. I was thinking about the tape you mentioned, and thought I'd pass along what seems to be working well for me.

There is some sort of epoxy-treated electrical style tape available now. When you stretch it it activates in some way, and then does a great job of sticking to itself. Unlike the (even the best seems to do this) gummy backed electrical type which eventually relaxes and starts to unwind itself, this stuff does not.

In those hard to reach areas I like to use "Liquid Tape." I just use my fingers to pull off the deteriorated cloth insulation, and then do two or three coats of the liquid tape. This has worked very well, but it does take more than one coat.

Probably nothing new here, but I thought it bore mentioning.

Jay

That shifter is cool! I especially like the knob: "Lalique"? Works for me.

Eastwood sells a vinyl tape that is not the black electrical tape that comes unglued after a while. You do have to tie it in a knot just like the original stuff. Find it on Eastwood's site.
