Yeah......I'm proud of that sucker, but just wanted to show that I had no spark plug wires showing because of the individual coils for each cylinder,  That cleans up the engine bay a lot.  And, you may notice there ain't no yeller and red wires running around in that bay.  You guys know I like my cars as factory correct as is possible.  Guys with colored wires and chrome stuff that is not factory correct have a learning curve not conducive with reality.   ;D

I want to hide as much of the wiring in my engine bay as possible (i hate the look of a messy engine bay) and i was looking for some tips or advice if anyone has done this before. I have been considering moving the battery to the trunk for a couple of reasons so that will eliminate some of it but i would like to have as little as possible. Thanks for any suggestions.


Back to the original question, Tim wanted to remove or hide some of the wires under his hood. One example was removing the solenoid, another would be getting rid of the windshield washer stuff. Another running your oil pressure wire under your motor and come up in the front, but you would need to build some type of little loops to attach to your oil pan to hold the wires in place.  Here's an example of a local stang here who cleaned up his engine bay.  I'm sure there are some of you smart guys out there who can come up with other ideas. I don't see how posting a picture of a 2k03 with only spark plug wires missing is even relevant for the question to the classics when you have a nightmare of hoses and wires with the original dust.

At least that one has black spark plug wires.  I use my windshield washer a lot, but that's one idea if you don't.  You might even try to move the Voltage Regulator to the other side of the engine next to the battery.  What about re-routing the main wiring harness under the engine somehow?

Well i already removed the washer stuff, but thanks for the suggestion. As for the headlight harness i am thinking of running it through the antenna hole and under the fender up to the lights. As for the starter solenoid i am going to be using a mini high torque starter so i don't think i will need that. Voltage regulator i have no idea yet, i think i might put that under the dash with my ignition box.
