Nice! That would be a useful project to teach a beginner. Heck, I might even make some up today. I have some glow in the dark skull beads.

Without rereading this entire thread. Can anyone point me in the right direction for "real" od green 550 cord at the best price? Would prefer ebay but need not be. I only need a couple hundred feet too. No need for a 1000' roll.

Or whatever color matches multicam best? I want to make some zipper pulls for my new multicam pack. I just sort of assume od will work best. I have some foliage but it doesn't match the best. And I don't think it's the real deal. (And ya, I've seen the "multicam" paracord. It's kinda fugly IMHO. I'd much prefer a solid color.)

Or even what the best brand is? I see truspec 550 cord around - that stuff is real isn't it?

Like this color looks like it matches multicam pretty good. Isn't that od green?

Looks OD to me. Multicam should match up against OD, Foliage, Flat Dark Earth and Coyote Brown, but it's mostly OD which is why it "looks" better when it's matched.

Tru-Spec is Mil-Spec it just doesn't have a colored leader strand (that seventh strand that's usually black), instead, it's white like the others. It's fine for "real" (read: non-mil contract) paracord.

And I think you can still get some on LAPG for cheap in the closeouts area. Like $6 per 100 ft. That's the last place I got a few packs.

Red cobra weave on condor rip away emt pouch handle. This stiffens the handle up a lot and keeps it sticking up which prevents it from being in the way of disengaging the security strap (when it is on my pack) and makes for easy grabbing off my pack. Also removed the velcro closure strap just incase you were wondering where that is.

for some reason ZS forums are cropping the right side of the image, sorry I didn't get the full handle in.

King cobra bracelet.

Small round flashlight wrap was difficult to find a wrap that would stay securely after wrapping. If I twisted the wrapping after I had finished then I could get several of the wraps to undue themselves. I finally figured out a method that would stay solid despite twisting. I just continued the wrap style into the fob.

Square knot fobs. The pocket knife fob is two tone.

My dad gave me a severe weather road kit years ago to keep in my truck when I was an OTR driver, and it had this little yellow folding shovel in it. I've never had occasion to put it to use, but figured I could add some paracord to it, so tied a pineapple knot around the center section... :)

Used boiled 550 in a cobra weave to affix a Maxpedition molle attachment to a nylon strap on a pack strap so I can have my compass pouch right where I want it.

Well not a post to show anything just a question.

Has anyone ever did a truck steering wheel wrap with para cord? What would the best style of wrap be? Will a 300 foot roll be enough? I got another Chevy Silverado with a slick wheel and need some grip.

I've not done a steering wheel wrap, but many others have, doing simple coiled cord wraps, to more decorative ringbolt/moku hitching, and Turk's head knots combinations and variations. How much cord is needed will vary a lot by many variables, but I'd say 300 feet should be plenty for a steering wheel wrap. :)

A gutted olive drab paracord gaucho knot tightened over a wooden lanyard bead, and a loop of black paracord finished with a two-strand stopper knot.
