Clips and things rip off in Oz

Those doing electrical work would know that the Jeep have these nifty push mount cable ties. These are difficult to find. AutoOne sells packets of 2 for $6 something. I whinged so the guy discounted it to $5 amounting to $2.50 per cable tie. I needed them that day so had to buy them. I've since ordered a packet of 25 from clipsandfasteners.com in the States which plus shipping comes to $1.25 per cable tie. Clipsandfasteners categorise their products by vehicle make so one can list of all the hard to get Chrysler bits. I particularly like the hard to get 1/4" wide flange black nylon blind rivets used around the mud guard surrounds.

Re: Clips and things rip off in Oz

The blind rivets need a special rivet tool that makes it all too expensive. I found it easier and quicker to use scrivets from the Oz suppier Car Parts Clips and Fasteners - Welcome To Car Parts Clips And Fasteners

Fair enough. I'm just a bit pedantic about fasteners.
