    Bump x2! (not nearly as clean as LA Stang but still much better than before!)

    Starting on the GT500 today. I dont think I'm going to be able to move the fuse box since it doesn't have separate wiring connections like the 05-09 GTs.

    Bump...! Sold the White Shelby before I committed to the wire tuck, but now I'm on my second Shelby and am fully committed this go around.

    Probably won't do the fuse box since it'll require just about every wire to be cut, but I'm only 2 hours in so who knows at this point lol.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Just had a look through this thread. I am installing a KB 2.6 on my '05 GT and have planned on doing a tuck and really cleaning up the engine bay while I am in there. I have a question. The only reasonable way that I can see to get the fuse box moved is to completely cut it out and splice it back in at the new location. Is this best practice or am I missing something?

    Yes that sounds right, it's been a couple years since I did mine but IIRC you can unwrap and re-route one of the harnesses with just a couple extensions (injector harness?), and there's only a couple wires to extend in another (headlight harness?), but you pretty much need to extend the main harnesses to the new location.

    Almost ready to solder. Got another wiring harness for free so I am looking at how to use that in this project as needed. Last picture is the product of some light compounding by hand using a Meguairs compound. Looks like I will be doing the entire bay, between the tuck and installing the KB.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
