What are you guys using for braided fuel line clips? Found something I thought would work really well but alas, seems they are for RC cars only.

I used P clips. You can use 2 180* apart with one mount screw to route 2 lines. They're rubber lined so no wear on the lines your running, whether fuel or brake lines, or electrical wires in loom.

That's what I used too. I believe Princess Auto had a decent selection. Other options may be Newline/Greenline.

I should probably just go with P clips. Was hoping for something a bit more elegant. Was thinking these:

They are pretty cheap, pack of four for around $13.00. The bottom isn't flat though and I wasn't pumped about metal on metal for securing them to the frame.

Then these:

Also reasonably cheap at six for around $16.00. Requires twice as many holes as the P clip though.

P clips are cheaper though, 15 for about $13.00, and nobody is likely going to be seeing them in the tranny tunnel anyway.

P clip/addel clamps are much better and less than 50 cents each generally. Standard aircraft bits.

Seems like it would be an easy part to 3d print. Perhaps you have a local "makers space" that could help you out? Material selection might be tricky. We use something exactly like this for cable routing in the bicycle industry but made of aluminum.
