Project SC300 Road Racer: Part 14 – Install it all, y'all
When we last left Project SC300, we had finished preparing all of the harnesses and refreshing the routing of our fire system. It was now time to actually get it all in. Get all the harnesses in, that is. Properly installing wiring harnesses isn’t all that terribly complicated, but there are a few odds and ends that some people forget. We made sure to properly handle them.
We decided to start with the main power wiring from the battery, and then move into the engine bay and start to lay out things. Then we’d circle back throughout the rest of the car installing harnesses as things presented themselves.
The XP Flex cable is a great product and, as the name suggests, is very flexible and easy to work with. It is not, however, a milspec cable. That means it may not have the same chemical and fire resistance as true M22759/32 wire. But, for the little quantity that we have, it’s probably OK. MilSpec wiring carries “welding cable” for their large-gauge wire.
This would allow us to use typical ring terminals at the end of our battery cables, and nuts to attach and secure everything.
The wiring kit would make it easy for me to attach the battery charger quickly. XS Power also has a complete line of chargers (IntelliCHARGER) that they supply as well.
