This is the Best of Show car at ACD Festival for 2019. If it had been my project, I probably would have gone Shiny Black wire from Brillman and I always have them professionally install the ends - also have them add a few inches extra and I clip off excess myself. brillman.com/product/7mm-cotton-braided-spark-plug-wire/

Under the current 810/812 Cord judging standards, only black or maroon spark plug wires are acceptable.

As a sidenote: I always use my voltmeter to test continuity of the wires through the terminals in the cap - you would be surprised at the trouble I and other people have also had with bad continuity though spikes in cap. Also, I have had a few NOS caps that the brass looks perfect, but they must have had some sort of clear coating on them to prevent corrosion (and it works), but I have had to sand all the brass pins to get continuity.

Good Information on the spike to wire continuity. I certainly will be checking this.
