Re: finally ready
I'm in the process of tucking some wires in my engine bay right now. So far I've found it easiest to cut them back towards the firewall, cap off any hot wires and then use some electrical tape/small zipties to keep it together and somewhat neat. I've been hiding the bundles near the firewall in plastic wire protector that i'm running along the backside. So they're only near the firewall, just in case I ever need them again.
I should mention however that I got the car with a 350 sbc and a/c deleted for the most part.. and the wires i'm tucking away now were disconnected when i got her.
