I am slowing coming to a point where this is a focus for me/my projects..

making custom pcb's.. and writing custom code is a good start... but when you present something with a rats nest or spaghetti wires....  it really looks like 'kaka'  (amateur)

I have found the ebay sellers wont commit to a specific color.. (its a random color that comes) which stinks.. since the prices are 'decent'.

I've been using this terminated ribbon cable from www.dipmicro.com

Or terminated wires from www.pololu.com and adding some tie wraps around the bundle in a few places.

The funny thing is I looked today at an old Enermax PC Power supply which I use for charging batteries. It uses exactly "your" nylon and heat shrink solution.
That power supply was all the time in plain sight on my work bench. I just never looked at the cabling...
