Default AC lines

So I got a little creative with the AC lines. Camped up with a way to make the ez clip ends and line look a little better.

Nylon shield and shrink tube for the win

Those look great. I never like hiding things that are critical to the function of the vehicle but you might make it look good.

I like them too. Both sets of valve covers I fabricated stick them in a mostly stock position.

Thanks .....that's my thinking too also maintance. Moving them to someplace that's impossible to get to or even worse someplace that exposes them to heat or the elements seems ill advised .

Sorry to hear that Grendel, I can't imagine how much that hurts. I bruised a rib once when I was younger and dumber. That was zero fun.


I really like how things are turning out XLexusTech. You came up with an elegant solution for the AC lines I'll probably commandeer when I get to that point. The new coil mounts cleaned up the valve covers tremendously.
