Where can I source multi colored zip ties?

Getting things in order to repair much wiring and connectors in engine compartment, 1994 XJS V12 Convertible.

Trying to source a zip tie assortment with a variety of colors to tag wires, connectors, etc.

The most I can find in any one kit is six colors.
Was thinking there should be something out there with white, black, and seven colors of the visual spectrum at a minimum.

Was wanting to stay away from less robust things like tape or paper stickies, etc.

Any ideas?

I use the thin aluminum tags that are attached with thin twist-ties like people use to label their rosebushes. They are waterproof and available very cheap in packs of 50 or 100 on amazon. You can write on them with a ballpoint pen and the writing indents to eliminate worry about ink smudging. Not a perfect solution but better than paper tags.

Jim - when I was doing my telphone work years ago, we used zip ties that had a write-on tab - I think these are still available and in color - check local walmart store for example, or Amazon for zip ties with tag - Tex.

There’s a wide range of straps, markers and ties available on Lazada, Thailand’s answer to Amazon. I have five colours + black and white in various lengths.
I can source and send to you if you need

I found some on Amazon, or ebay
some kit like this should do ?

zip ties with label are great for identifying network cables (until you need to get the cable though tight areas)

colored zip ties with label may be adding both features

The 14 different colors, 50 of each, is exactly what I need. Thanks for the help.

Will get some of the tabbed zip ties to tag things removed. It seems that these projects have a way of running long and my memory is not as keen as it once was. Thanks.

I recommend also taking many pictures along the way


Both are true statements but being on the closing laps of a 2+ year restoration of a Series III, I would modify thusly:

I recommend also making many videos along the way and narrate to yourself what your are doing/looking at
