Look through this thread, it has alot of links to how to's in it. Not sure how many of the links are still good though.

I have the holes and I really don't notice them. BUT like everyone has said you can paint some little plastic interior push pins.

I believe it's the cable pictured on the right, and yes zip ties around it.

tie-wrap

Have someone step on your gas pedal, and check if there is any play at the throttle body (and that it's fully open)?
All this usually does is raise the gas pedal!

It made the pedal too high to be comfortable for me....I had to take the tie-wrap off.

It's the cable on the left. Yes, just using the zip ties as spacers to remove the slack from the cable
