Cleaning up Passenger side wiring

It looks like it's about time I clean up the wiring enough that at least a passenger isn't afraid to hop in the car!

Wiring is a little wild here.

I figured I could run all the cabling under the car in some big conduit.

I used a hole saw to cut into the spare tire well on the back. Then I ran a 10 foot section of 1.5 inch plastic conduit into it with a 45 degree elbow and a short bit of flexible conduit.

Once I had the conduit under the car and connected in back I pulled a LONG section of old welding cable (1/0 size) through there.

I also ran some other misc. cable in there for whatever else I will need to connect from the back to the front. This may include the charger connections, a contactor wire, power to the 12V charger, etc.

That gets to be a lot of stuff to pull through there!!!

I like the looks of the pipe sticking out front. Looks like a 007 car gun.
