Lloyd's blue clips are the closest I have ever seen to what I have found originally.
FWIW the above photo of the blue clip with 5/16 and the number 4 on it is one from a 12C X66 L35 conv I did years ago.
Here is another off of the 12C X66 Olive and you can see how much zinc is still on the clip... when dunked in mild acid the green and the silver both bubble... indicating zinc passivation.

Lloyd,
Where did you purchase your manganese phosphate?
I need some.

Hi James, I buy it from Scott Owens at Palmetto Enterprises. The last time I did he was selling on eBay only however I think he’s back to selling direct. During the period he was out of the business I tried Brownell’s manganese solution however wasn’t impressed.

He has both zinc phosphate and manganese phosphate.
What's the thoughts on the zinc phospate? Use where?

I use Palmetto's zinc solution as well with good results. On my 69Z project the only parts I have found that need zinc phosphating are the hood hinges (excluding the springs), the hood latch (also excluding the spring) UPC 11/13, B6 #1, and hood catch / receiver assembly UPC 11/13, B6 #3.  Nothing else - so far.

I've completed restoration of the clips for the 3/8" fuel line on my 69Z project, so for the sake of completeness I'm posting the end result for reference (front to back routing):

Engine Compartment: 2 blue (semi-transparent) 3/8" clips (closed loop)


Outside Right (front) Sub frame Rail: 2 blue (semi-transparent) 3/8" clips (closed loop)


Underbody against pinch weld seam: 1 black chromate 3/8" clip (hoop style)
Not photographed

Underbody, Front of Leaf Spring Bucket: 1 clear zinc plated clip with large end of clip facing front of car


Inside (rear) Frame Rail: 2 black chromate 3/8" clips (hoop style)



Top of (rear) Frame Rail: 1 manganese phosphated bracket secured with 1" non self tapping bolt

Great pics Lloyd, thanks for posting.  Curious as to why you decided to change the front two clips from natural or clear zinc noted in your take-off pic early in the thread to the translucent blue at install?
