I installed a new ac hose. I really dont want to drill a new hole in my painted inner fender to put another cushion clamp(but may have to). So I'm looking for alternatives to that. Maybe there is some fabric insulation I could put over the hose to protect the paint. Looking for ideas
I have these 3m zip tie mounts I could stick to the paint and run a zip tie to but I dont know if the paint will come off if I peel it off one day. I think that's what I'll try

Copper hot water line insulation comes to mind, in black foam.

Okay well I went with the sticky zip tie mounts . But I still need to do something for where it hits the battery and tray . I'll go to the store. May end up with the copper pipe foam . If it will hold up. Would have to check it after a few ...

Yes but I didn't want the bracket on the paint. I thank you though. I went with zip tie mounts

It would be on the ac hose that gets warm so I guess that wouldnt hurt

Maybe its just the perspective of the photos, but it looks to me like you could just hang the hose from the grill support bar and it wouldn't touch fender paint at all.

It's not the Voltage, but the Amperage that will kill you.

Late to the party but I was going to suggest using a piece of weatherstrip foam. A 6-8" piece of 3/8" thin, compressible foam with the self adhesive side stuck to the bottom of the hose would be hidden and needs nothing adhered to the paint.

I was thinking the foam would still rub the paint.

You are worried about the paint under the hood, yet you put your large batch of KEYS on the exposed painted fender?? You better break that habit now!

You need to take that A/C hose off and have it remade. I'm very sure there is a shop that makes custom A/C hoses(lines) for custom Hot Rod,Street Rod installs. That can clean that up, with a couple of tweaks. And it will keep the hose away from the inner fender.Those plastic sticky hold downs are for lite wiring, they will not be sticking around very long. And you can tie the two hoses together as the run forward. For a much cleaner look. Rather than a after thought and everything just thrown together. You might spend $30.00 on the hose. Its to nice of a Jeep to not do it just right. I may own worthless opinion.

Okay thank you. . Yeah I try to be careful. Sometimes I slip up. The hose I can definitely make a little shorter. The problem I have Is that fitting at the compressor for that line is a 90 degree fitting so the way I had it before was routing it straight toward the grille putting a curve in the hose tight at the fitting and I broke the fitting. The factory has the hose routed toward the firewall then back like I do. . I got lucky with the zip tie mounts because the hose sits on them zip ties.. I may have that hose shortened I just have the system charged already. I gave it too much slack to bend back.

You missed my point. They make fitting for every make A/C compressor made, that has different angle bends. So A/C compressors can be swapped into just about anything made. And its not that hard to make your own hose ends yourself. Just saying.
