Glowshift wiring

Hi guys,
Got my glowshift 3 in 1 gauge in last night, and was wondering what you found was the easiest way to run the wires that power the gauge. Im running the positive and negative right to the battrery, but wanted some ideas on where to run the others that are close and easy to access!

Thanks!

I made a couple of cuts from in the wiring harness they sent me. Made a common positive, ground, and dimming wire coming off the back of the gauges so I only had to worry about running and snaking 3 wires, a boost line and my egt wires instead of the mess they sent you. I just ran mine through the hole from the factory oh s**t handle and down behind the dash next to the door jamb. From there they pip out right under the dash for splicing in to the headlights. I used a bolt under the dash for a ground and an add a circuit for my power. Pretty easy. I can send pics if you need.

Thanks

You don't have to take too much apart to put that sensor in. Just get that radiator hose out of the way. Boost line won't be an issue either. I will post them when I get back.

The white and the orange are my main concern on doing, positive and negative are going right to battery. Not sure on the boost and egt, but ill try and figure it out. Have you painted your pillar yet? I ordered tan, when my interior is grey! So I either need to paint it, or plastidip it.

Should I be turning the screw away from the fuel bowl or towards it to get it out?! Seems likes its tight in there!

Thanks!

That's where your sending unit will screw into. Still can't get pics cause of a thunder storm. Don't force it. If you snap them, you have to buy a whole new filter housing. $300 to find that out
