It's all in the IVA manual
300mm or less
I've built one, helped on 3 others and we have 2 more in the barn.

It's in the section titled "General Construction"

7. All electrical cables/wires must be free from chaffing and secured at intervals of at least every 300mm unless contained in a secure hollow component.

Sorry, should have read the whole thread properly

I can't find any dimensions for hoses/pipes either. I think the relevant section is "Hydraulic and Vacuum Systems", but it basically just says they need to be securely and adequately clipped/supported.

I'm just about to go and cut and drill the 'perforated' steel strips to down the transmission tunnel - and can't find any clear reference in the whole IVA manual to a set distance for fluid carrying lines - other than 'A brake pipe or hose must be adequately clipped or otherwise supported' - in the 'Hydraulic and Vacuum Systems' section.

Given that 300mm is stated as the necessary interval for electrical wires in the 'General Construction' bit it's fairly logical to argue that the same dimensions apply to any other similarly fixed item...

To be on the safe side i'm going to go a little under - say 250mm - when drilling my holes for the p-clip rivets...
