So what  have others used
to hold the junction of wires on the "B" terminal that now  is the sole
function of the regulator? Want it to look good, and of course,  be secure
and reliable.

I went to an electronics supply store and bought a plastic block that has a  
machine screw in the middle of it to tie the three wires together.  I then  
anchor the block to the frame of the engine compartment right next to the front  
corner of the battery.  I anchor the block with a machine screw through the  
block.  You need to drill and tap the frame to accept the machine  screw.  I 
found the blocks are available with one or two terminal screws,  tied together 
(my favorite) or with only one screw.  Makes for a very clean  and safe hook
