Re: Wiring for Off Road Racing
NO, NO, NO!
You will do best to go where it all began.
I use the single screw wire straps from Willy's Jeeps as the are flexible and strong and yes take a little longer then glue and tape, but stay put as well as removable.
Instead of useing a screw driver flat head or philips.
Het the same size for a 5/16 wrench or what ever metric wrench is close to that size.
Then the heads are easy to tighten and loosen with out stripping a later down the road screw top.
We all know that will require a bit of drilling and easy out to recover from.
You can also use existing holes and make new ones so that when you place the harness in it can be tight yet flexible.
The little sigle screw wire mounts are not expensive either.
I use them from WWII, Jeeps, as well as early CJ's and can byt them Repro almost anywhere too.
This is your best choice that won't make a mess and can be undone for things such as a CB radio or a Stereo mounting at anytime.
Take it from Nate and I who off road 7 days a week together and race and crawl on the circuit, this is the best choice to use.
