      finally got the battery in place and all wired up

      Photobucket

      got yelled at for using the storage united electric last night thanks god i got all my soldering done

      but really sucks because i cant do everything i wanted to do (now time to find a new place)

      this is what the bay looks like right now. still have to hook up a few wires hide some more hoes to make it look cleaner and find out how im going to run my evap lines to the rain tray or find a new place to put it. i still have to finish relocating the power steering (trying to do all of this with out having a check engine light on after im done)

      ps can anyone tell me how to hide the ac line because i really dont want to take it out

      Go hangout with Swoops one weekend. He could do a hard or braided line setup for your ac. I'll eventually have him do mine, until the time being I'm just going to color match the oem lines to go with the colors of my car.

      thats a good idea but i like to do everything my self but maybe he can help me plus he will prob charge a lot of money and i dont know where he is from and i have never met him but the color matching is a great idea

      Yeah, it requires a fair amount of work for what seems like a simple job to do it correctly.

      I think it'd be pretty cool to match them to your wheels and various parts in the bay.

      so i have decided to delete my whippers set up and i was a ACE hardware and found some plugs for where the whippers went. now i just got to restore it back to black because its a little faded

      Photobucket

      so i went to go relocated my power steering but i found out since i have a side mount i cant put it where everyone puts there's but i found a new location for it and it looks good there i think

      Photobucket

      im happy with the finish look

      Photobucket

      so how for the bay pic, i still have to run the braided lines for the gas, fill in the cut out where the factory wires came out and find out what to do with the vacuum hose coming out of the intake that goes to the brake booster ( im open to any ideas if you guys have them)

      Photobucket

      ps im going try and take my friends camera so i will have some good pics for once

      swoop said that he offer AC line relocation kits so i think that im going to buy one off him if its not to much money

      but now now i think im going to use your idea and just color match it to my bay

      yeah i was too, in till i started. just read the wire tuck threads and you will be find, it is not bad. it just takes a lot of time, now that i have done it i wish i did a full on shaved bay which i might still do during the winter and after i get my daily driver.

      and like the other guy said the wires are the easiest part
