Couldn’t stand to look at the crappy wiring in my dragster anymore so I decided to tackle it myself. Lots of reading on here,YouTube videos, and a lot more hours than I expected later it’s almost done lol. Car had no relays at all before and more t taps and bad connections than I could count. In hindsight I wish I would’ve made a flat panel up top instead of mounting to my firewall but maybe later. Also went with led push button switches.I do have a question about my distributor wires. I have the 6’ shielded msd cable and from that point I twisted the wires I spliced on the msd and ran them in the red loom down in the floor near the alternator cable. Is that ok as it’s all shielded? These are before pics

Much much better, and you did it your self.
I did notice you have the terminal strip supporting one batch of wires, that might become an issue with breakage.

Definitely no more scotch clips lol and thanks mrdragster! I’ll be sure to keep an eye on them. Those strips are just for the switches and gauges which were all daisy chained before. Everything was crimped with uninsulated connectors and then heat shrunk

You did an amazing job for your first major project.
I just noticed you have that one batch coming from the top rail directly into the strip,
I'm not a fan of the wires not being supported at a hard connection.
So I figured I better mention it.

ah I see what you’re saying. I do have them zipped pretty snug to the bar just above them that my dash mounts to, and made sure that they weren’t stressed before or after that so hopefully they’ll ride lol. Also decided to try shifting on time through the pro cube. Definitely made it easier to check the shifter operation but now I need to figure out a backup button so my shifter isn’t going off every time I use reverse

Use a diode and a single pole toggle. That's what I've been doing for decades!!!
Make sure it's a quality piece that can handle the draw!!!

Looks great!
Those plastic covers over the terminal strip fell off and went into the back seat the first time I let go of the trans brake.
