I am planning on installing a 4L foam fire system in the E30 this weekend, but was wondering how best to secure the tubing and cables along the floorpan/interior, and what the best method of mounting the spray nozzles would be (I already know where, it's the how that I don't know)?

If it matters, it's the 4L steel system from Bimmerworld.

Thanks.

Tie wraps would do it, but the rubber lined clamps would be better.

In race care, the nozzle normally just hangs in the air on the metal tubing.

Thanks, Terry.

James Clay just emailed me back, giving me the name of what I was looking for: Adel clamps -- I couldn't figure out how to describe them and that made it a whole lot harder to find them online (Longacre makes them in packs of 10 for $5 -- as opposed to buying them at a bike shop for $2 apiece.)

Unfortunately, because the tubing isn't the rigid aluminum (it's thinner, with a rubber coating), I'm going to have to fabricate the nozzle mounts myself.
