I haven't done one, but from threads and photos I have seen it appears to be a huge PITA with lots of relocating and splicing of wires to be done.

Re: Wire tuck

It looks really nice guys, but entirely too much time and effort for me.
Plus if you have wiring trouble that's going to be very difficult to work on.

I'd say for a show car a definite yes, but no for anything else.

Did you have the panel custom made or did you order it from somewhere
