No, I think he means engine bay.
It doesn't look that noticeable on a Civic, cause you can still see some wires. On vw's you can't see a thing so on them it looks good.

I searched the web today, and only saw a couple of pics (even on Honda Tech). I wonder if you might want to pose the question there too, hopefully one of those guys who did it might give some insight.

Man those tuck jobs are sick. They make your engine bay look like a real ummm...."ENGINE BAY". No wires anywhere, just straight focus on the engine. Makes the visual appeal much more appealing. But I imagine the process will take a long time and lots of headaches.

Im more of function over looks, its pointless because most of those wires are behind fenders hidden away, pain in the *** working on the car, finding the wires, etc...
