Still gotta do the necessary wiring on my car for mine. I've got all the bits, was just waiting for the weather. Now it's here I'm busy with other things! typical!!!

That brings me to a question.....

When wiring the relay to the car, would you take the easy option & run the cables underneath, clipped safely to wherever (brake pipes, fuel lines etc) or would you do the job properly & run them internally?

Internally is the correct way, as they are protected, but it's a right pain, so much easier to run underneath.

What do you guys reckon?

Me think it wouldnt pass a MOT doing it the easy option.

It's rear wheel drive as well, so plenty of moving parts under there, to get past.

Maybe best to go internally.

Getting through the bulkhead is the worst bit, it's pretty much plain sailing after that (I hope).
