    They're gay as aids... Especially if you pay someone to do it for you.

    word.
    just do it yourself..

    all you have to do is hide the wires, some may require extending.. just route them around shit till it looks good.

    :werd: The first question should be do you know how to solder? As that is 95% of doing a tuck.

    Wire tucks fucking suck. They are a pain in the ass and really its not doing anything for your car, just tuck the headlight harnesses behind the fenders and call it good. Those are half of the battle right there, they look like complete ass running along the shock towers and such.

    They're only a pain in the ass if you go into your first one thinking it will be a walk in the park...

    To me they look pretty difficult but I have never really messed around with wires that much. I think there pretty stupid. I have seen a few were people put there coolant reservoir behind the front bumper to where if they need to even see the reservoir you would have to take the bumper off. To me that is just plain stupid.

    I'm going to redo my MPFI wiring because it looks like ass, and I admit that a nice tucked/shaved bay looks totally sweet, but it's never been something I considered necessary. MAybe on a ground-up rebuild of a complete car, but not just for shits and giggles.
