Default Green wire loom. Links provided, but please add more

I found some green wire loom, but I'd like more to choose from with more sizes.

1/2 inch:

1/4 inch:

Looks like a really fugly green, too. As you may have seen in my crazy 94 ripping apart thread, I'm taking off the wire loom in my car. It is becoming increasingly difficult to find the wire sets I need. Also, I'm doing all of this and tracing wires without an FSM.

Let me get this straight, you have fluorescent blue engine bay accent paint, and now you want to add green wire loom?

First of all, get off the case-mod sites, those sizes are for computers, not engine bays. Check ebay.

I just ask that you do not vomit inside the engine bay. The blue came out fluorescent with the old camera, but when the weather here clears up and I can go outside and take some better pictures with the new camera, I'll show you the color a bit better. I'm still looking for a good deal on one, so please post in the Lounge if you find anything.

Anyway, I'm hoping not to have the colors clash by having the green only in the front driver'* side corner of the engine bay and inside the front bumper.

I went to Froogle, which led me to the case modifying site. Actually, no other green wire loom links were provided in Froogle, and usually I would be lead to eBay through there. And wow! That Cable Ties and More place has just the green I was looking for!

EDIT: They've also got that vomit friendly blue I can add to my engine bay!

The side where the wire looms are going to go is right by the driver'* side wheel and in the front bumper area. Unlike the passenger side where there'* a little shield to protect the belts, there'* nothing on the driver'* side to protect the transmission housing and originally black wire looms.

So, I believe the green wire looms are going to get a bit dirty and maybe bent in an unappealing manner, but at least they'll help me identify wire groups. There'* a huge, black wire loom that goes to right about the FWI goes, so the green wires that go out from there won't be visible unless you look generally in that direction rather than straight ahead at the engine.

In all fairness I admit I also believe the happy blue, most similar to GM Corporate Blue, is over the top. In fear of going too far with it, I only painted the strut bar but not the butterfly-like attachments at the ends of said bar. I also painted the fuse panel cover and the supercharger wire cover. Those can easily be "fixed" if need be, so I'm not too worried about the color at the moment.

The important thing is that I've found green wire looms! Yes! Thanks guys.

Make sure whatever loom you buy is actually heat rated for engine bay use. Cheaper looms will fade to a whitish looking coating after about 6 months also.

Should I contact the sites to check for heat thresholds? I was trying to find some more wires in my wire loom today, and the stuff around the throttle body fell to pieces in my hands. On the other hand, the wire loom around the front headlight felt thick and very flexible. What'* the normal heat range the wires/wire looms experience in that area?
