I can't remember who it was asking for a shot of the bay but here it it.. I'm planning to get it tidied up as soon as I can afford to. What are the costs invovled in cleaning up wires and tidying hoses, re positioning things like Battery master and slave cylinders, all the stick out like a sore thumb stuf????

Nathan, Why don't you have a go yourself? At the end you will have saved yourself heaps of money and you will also have the satisfaction of doing it all yourself. With others doing wiring and fiddly jobs like that, you just paying for labour costs.
I'd suggest concentrating on 1 thing at a time. Maybe just 1 wire to begin with, look at it, work out the best way you can hide it and achieve your goal. Then move onto the next item you want to hide. Eventually your engine bay will look neat as a pin. I would also suggest moving the battery to under the tray first. Doing that will clear up space around the motor so you can get in there and work with greater ease. Moving the battery will also eliminate 4 or so wires from the engine bay, so there you go, your already on your way. That's how I started with mine. I didn't even know what an earth wire was when I started. Now I've reduced the wires in my car to only 37 and you can only just see 4 in the engine bay. I'm working on hiding them soon too.
Just give it a go mate, I promise, it will be worth it.

Yeah that does sound like a good idea but at the same time it will be off the road longer and seeing its my daily driver and all I can't have it out of action too long. I work monday to Saturday and some sundays so I'll have a hard time finishing what I've started... if I had another car it would be cool but I dont and borrowing a car at home is like trying to swim up a waterfall. Its not a high priority at the moment so I'll think about it more.. Might have a holiday and visit Canberra, you can give me a hand disco

That is still a very tidy install as is and the colour matches the car very nicely I like it.

Yeah but I just want to hide the crap... You know how it is when something is fine the way it is but when you look at it too much you want something different..? I like cleaning s##t in the engine bay and there isn't much point when it has ugly wires... I do it anyway though

Could you fabricate or buy a reverse mount pedal box set-up? I use one of the Wilwood reverse mount pedal boxes in the race car, all master cylinders are now located under the dash, inside the car. You would no be able to run a booster though.

Yeah it could be mounted under the tray, depending on your exhaust. This is what I've done but my exhaust is pretty straight: discussion

Hey that box is pretty awesome... I am looking at something exactly like this... Should be able to make a lock up one... I get paranoid about it getting stolen even when I don't let it out of my site or park it anywhere... Are there details about this you can email to me? anything will be appreciated... Thanks for posting the pics...

Here's a link

They also sell them polished and natural finish. They sell plastic ones too and the wire kit. Something similar should be available locally there too.
