where are you dragging it at..? pcv is straight so i am guessing along the frame rails? i usually run mine through the frame rails (on a G body) and zip tie it it the end to keep it snug.. some people don't like running through the rails though...

I'll admit. I use cable ties and hose clamps. Not too pretty underneath but it doesn't bother me. :)

use zip ties and make sure that the will not come lose again!!! Me boy made the mistake of just pullin his line and trin to wrap it around his fuel cell. It was still loose and draggin on the ground while we were doin 65 on the freeway. All of a sudden we are draggin rockers at 65 mile and hour. By the way it is a body dropped Nissan hardbody. we rigged it up and since it was 9pm we couldn't find any hose places so I traveled the side of the freeway and found a rock and put in in between the arm and frame and we slowly cruised to a friends house. and bought a hose in da morn
