simple.

take off fenders bumper hood.

drill holes and put in grommets wherever needed to run wiring, extend whatever wires you need to extend (solder and heatshrink please) and make it all disappear from plain view.

the concept is simple, the execution is harsh. if you gotta ask how to do it, then really it's not for you. it's a very custom and personal project. there is really no real 'how to' on it. i mean.... just HIDE THE WIRES.

you could carburate the car and eliminate a whole bunch of circuits that way

IMO not worth the time and effort. I bet if you did this not even 20% of people who saw the engine bay would know the difference!

the fuse box will go inside the car no problem, I think only 1 wire needs to be extended...I was gonna do this too but I'm lazy and I just got hid some of the other crap instead of totally gutting the engine bay

Some people think spending 5k on a ef is not worth the time and effort but thats a state of opinion. If you do a COMPLETE wire tuck, people will always ponder "why does it look so empty"
