Fabulous restoration. I can only imagine how many hours you had on 2 machines. Your detailed pictures have been helping me on my 444.

Were do you get your wire looming material from. (The material you wrap the wires in) It is a very nice finishing touch.
Also saw your post on the rubber boot for the kill switch.
Thanks Randy

I buy the wire loom from a local electronic shop. However I believe the manufacturer is called Techflex located in New Jersey. The website is http://www.techflex.com
It is called a self wrapping split braided. I find this very nice to work with being a split loom you can easily slide it over existing wires that are already in place. After it is on, I find if you just roll it in your fingers, it locks it in place as there is sort of a locking seam along it. My supplier tells me it comes in 1/8", 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4". For most Hus-ski or Diablo applications I find the 1/4" and 1/2" work best. It is quite expandable so these two sizes do the trick. Hope this helps you out.
PS - your 444 restoration is looking awesome!

Thanks for posting this. I'm going to check out that website tonight. Hopefully they sell it direct or I will have to find a supplier.
Can't wait to get it done, never enough hours in the day. Randy.

These are the skis I won at the Diablo 50th Anniversary event. These skis were donated by Barrie Graham. They are absolutely the finishing touch I needed to complete my 444 restoration. They are gorgeous and just make this restoration perfect!! Thanks Barrie, I love them :D
