Unhappy Red 7mm spark plug wires?

sigh

I have looked in Jegs, Summit, and others...

I cannot find any stinking red 7mm plug wires.

8mm and above yes, but no 7mm.

Accel makes 7mm in blue and yellow, but not red.

I want them for my 74 AMC. Reason being..... it's mostly stock 360 with the Delco points distributor, all I need is 7mm for my application, and the factory wire looms are built into the valve cover and made for 7mm.

I wanted red because the engine is blue. I hate blue wires on a blue engine because they are 2 totally different shades of blue. And I hate yellow wires because, well, just because. I thought the red would look nice on a blue engine and kinda go with the AMC company colors.

Anyone know anywhere I can get 7mm red wires?

Even a single wire on a large spool is ok. (bulk)

I would just make my own. (have terminals, ends, boots, etc)

I couldn't resist.

I've been over at this racing site (Corner-Carvers) where they are *not* politically correct. At all. Ever.
I guess some rubbed off.

They do, however, have a sensitivity training course page Corner Carvers Sensitivity Training
Hilarious.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot.

In their "Guide for newbys" they finish with "Try not to piss off the big meany-head administrators" and "The best way to draw attacks and flames for being a newbie is to begin a post with "Hi, I'm a newbie, so please don't flame me". Once the smell of fresh blood is in the water a feeding frenzy will almost always ensue. Thrashing around will only make it worse."

ROFL!

Thanks...

I knew about them, sadly they are transparent (yuck)

I'm looking for just a standard red 7mm wire.

Anyone else?

Why do you want 7mm's? This seems a bit strange.

Many thanks Meanroy! Links are much appreciated. I should be able to find something with the leads (pun) you provided.

I was looking at their site last night, it doesn't seem like they have 7mm in red. And I agree with you, their wires are excellent. And their website is the most informative of any on plug wires.
