Plug wire holders

Who sells the best looking spark plug wire holders. I saw some somewhere that ran along the bottom of the valve covers that were really neat. Does anybody know where I might find these? Thanks

Well, I tried three different versions, none looked as good as the pictures. I went back to a version of these from ford motorsport for simplicity and just cleaner looking:

I just used zip ties as well. Not perfect, but it works.

I used these black anodized aluminum in-line wire separators. I think Summit sells them. Clean look with nothing bolted to the valve covers.
I personally like the look of the ones secured to the valve covers though. Sleek clean look but they would get in the way of my dip stick for one thing. I like to be able to easily move the wires to some degree if needed the way I'm set up.

I like the '80s Mustang plug wire looms. They're neat, out of the way, and not overly flashy. You need the front 6 valve cover bolts with studs that fit into the bottom of each loom. Here they are;https://duckduckgo.com/?t=ffab&q=198...Fhw0050__1.jpg

My other issue with the fancy brackets, you cannot use spark plug wire hi temp boot protectors. The boots are to long. That and those brackets seem to me to hold the wires right over your header, while the simple separator leaned a little further away.

This, another reason wire brackets a no go, you are not moving wires very easily.
