All the front wiring finished with the headlights. Punched a hole in the buckets for grommets and used split conduit to cover the 5 14ga. wires and then covered that with fiberglass fabric shrink tubing. Remains flexible, can't see any split conduit, and best of all the lights can be removed without tearing the whole front end apart. Center line of the grommet on the side panel is on the center of the joint so everything comes apart easily. There are Weather Pack plugs on the inside to disconnect them. 20190423_131311.jpg 20190423_131228.jpg
