Cool Wire Tuck

Just thought I would post up my engine cleanup. I did it once already but I didn't like the way it turned out. It was kind of a pay but in the end it was worth it. Just takes alot of patience and a good back and legs.

So this was the start:

Then I tried this and didn't like it:

And the final outcome would be this:


Tell me what you think.

Yea, I couldn't stand the spider web of wires. Had to do something. And for the cost of two roles of electrical tape, it was well worth it.

Yea I was worried as well. That was the first try(the blue tape). But then I said screw it and went for it. Just cut one wire at a time. I scared myself once cause I had a bunch of cut wires laying around. But I figured it out thankfully.
