Engine Bay Wire Tuck
#1
Ive had this plan for how is was going to tuck the harness a couple weeks ago and was finally able to make it happen this afternoon.ill do a step by step for anyone wanting to do this.its not completely finished by any means as I might relocate the voltage regulator depending on turning radius.im open to any input on improvements. First off I started with a holesaw kit and went ahead and hooked the firewall grommet up made a 2inch hole slightly above it.[Image: 346lus9.jpg][Image: 111pcfn.jpg] a few months back I welded 4studs under the driver side apron for whatever I might need to mount and it looks like its going to work out perfect for the horns[Image: 30hmxrn.jpg] next I drilled a 1.75 inch hole through the apron right behind where it meets the radiator support[Image: 332njgl.jpg] then I took a diegrinder and trimmed the two openings under the radiator support to fit the light sockets through[Image: 14dfzsx.jpg][Image: v32fdw.jpg] next I cut a 1.25 inch hole through the passenger apron where it meets the rad support[Image: 2iar8er.jpg] I had also welded 2 studs on the passenger side for the starter solenoid final product once everything is tied up[Image: 2e3cs4l.jpg] all you'll really see is the wiper motor plug and a few wires running to the block.[Image: dz9to6.jpg]

I like it!

With the S Solenoid and Regulator mounted there don't drive in the rain.
A 1-wire alternator will eliminate the regulator
Perhaps a shield for the solenoid.

Some vacuum line cut to length and slit makes a good grommet BTW

Good idea on the shield and that was my plan for a grommet after its painted. Hopefully the car will never be in the rain unless I get caught in it

I did the same but since I repaired my firewall I put the hole on the fender side of the firewall , got a 1 wire alternator and moved the starting relay to the back of the pass side shock tower on the inside. I ran all the wires for it through the pass side fire wall . Horn will be in driver side wheel well,

I routed mine in a flextube, easy to remove wires from if you want or ad wires to. But of course you can see it

No I can't I am too busy looking at that engine!


Nice job OP! I had some electronics I wanted to keep away from the rain and such. I found a 'tupper wear' about the right size and used grommits for the wires coming in and out. It has worked really well.

Robsweden,

Nice looking there. Where did you mount your Hi and Low horns? Also, Do you miss the windshield washer bottle? I am debating whether or not to place my spark box in the same location. Maybe with these solutions here, It may make help in my decisions in what direction to go in.

Interesting choice of msd6a box location, also your alternator belt any reason for it to be that type?
