engine bay smoothing and hidden wiring in brisbane

has anyone had their vl engine bay smoothed and wiring hidden in brisbane before?

who did the work?

can anyone recommend anyone?

my cars currently in the panel shop after a massive crash into a tree, its now repaired but unpainted and no engine/driveline, just wondering what the best process would be to go about doing this.

You'll probably need to bolt your engine in to do the wiring loom if it is not standard engine setup but there are a few good people out there that can do this sort of work.

These guys did the harness in our HQ Monaro with plates MR HP (see link at bottom)

Graham Carr - Smoothed and painted the engine bay in my VL wagon.

A combination of PE Customs and RockSolid Autobody did the smoothing of the engine bay in the HQ:

Hope this is helpful.

yes thanks, i have come to my senses that i should smooth the engine bay first, paint it then drop the engine back in before completing the hidden wiring.

i want my bay to be totally smooth compared to the wagon picture, i dont want a single thing on either side except for smoothness and paint. (relocate battery, fuse box, powersteering reservoir, radiator overflow reservoir, windshield washer reservoir, remove charcoal canister, hide oil catch can, remove air con, only thing left will be the brake master and booster.)

thanks for you reply.

No problem, if you ever wanted to come around and look at the HQ to see how we did it, I'm only at Mt Gravatt, shoot me a pm.
